Eight women live together in one room in Hasakah. They share stories of the conflicts, and memories of their loved ones as many of their children and husbands were killed during conflict. Zeinab (front) from Manbij, in Aleppo governorate, describes their lives under the rule of IS. Zeinab resettled in Ain Al Arab after the collapse of IS in her hometown, but was forced to flee again due to Turkish military operations. Most of the women have no documentation—they fled by foot until they were able to reach Hasakah.
