About This Resource

Inspired by the refugee experiences of several students from Byrne Creek Secondary School in Burnaby, this zine tells the story of a fictional Yazidi family who flee from war-torn Iraq to Canada. Students will learn about the many barriers most refugees face before finally settling as permanent residents in their country of asylum. Teachers can print multiple copies of the zine or students can read it on a SMART Board or tablet. The lesson plans help students to delve deeper into the refugee experience.
