In a European country, in a school, children from different nationalities are in geography class. Their teacher asks them, “Show your country on the world map.”

The children go to the map one by one, look at it with excitedly, and point to their country with their finger.

A Kurdish girl follows her friends to the world map. She looks at the map and waits for a minute. Then it moves a little closer to the map and looks again at each part of the map. Then she covers his face with her palms, only her eyes are full of concern on the map of the world. She lets out a scream, tears fall from her eyes and fall onto the map. Her teacher understands the situation and comes to caress her head.

She sits stunned in his seat and speaks to no one. In the evening she returns home. In tears she complains to her mother and father, “Our country is not on the world map, our country is not on the world map. You always mention it, where is our country?!”

The parents, who have fought for their country for years, embrace their daughter.

Her father tells her about the history of the Kurds and the world. He marks his country’s place in his daughter’s heart and says, “The map of the world is wrong, my dear, we will correct it.”

This girl and thousands like her are still waiting…
