Email from "Mrs. Siham Jouhari" Al-Amiriya Shelter filmmaker

Dear Mr. Sahab,

I have found your article ''Amriya Shelter''' posted on your website. My name is Siham Jouhari and I am doing a research about the US bombing on the Al-Amiriya Shelter in 1991.

I am actually preparing a Master in Fine Art at the New York Film Academy in Abu Dhabi and have chosen this terrible and unfortunately forgotten massacre to develop it into a screenplay and later a movie which I hope will be released in 2011 for the 20th Sad Anniversary.

I did not visit the site in Baghdad neither met the witnesses, the only sources I have so far are based on blogger's site, US reports and other International News media that I prefer to avoid.

I would like to show and tell stories of the people during this event of war as well as the suffering later when the embargo was imposed. I could never talk better than those people even if my craft necessitate an important part of imagination but in this particular case my heart is silent as I never experienced LOST.

I have heard about this lady ''Umm...'' who lost her eight children and husband while going home across the street to bring them food, that is the character I would like to discover as it is just incredible how human adapt and can survive such pain.

Therefore, I would like to know if by any chance you have met witnesses or better the seven survivors which names are not being released.

I will be more than happy if I can get anything such as stories, names, photos, memoir etc....

I thank you for your involvement as a writer and hope to hear from you in the near near future.

Best Regards...
Mrs. Siham Jouhari

MIXMAX write to me and write about my blogs




:MIXMAX SAY

What is most interesting on this blog is the the contrasts and combination between the politics of yesterday and the politics of today, both pour in the same jar: the suffering of the Iraqi peopleGreat blog. I checked you other two blogs and I have none but my compliments and admiration to the effort you are doing in documenting everything related to these issues.


and edit in his blog

there is a exclusive blog (in Arabic and English) on the tragedy, can found here to commemorate the victims of Al Amiriya Shelter. It is by a blogger under the name Sahab, who also created another blog about the children from al Hanan orphanage. It contains many pictures and videos, in addition to eye witnesses and interviews with people concerning this genocide. In addition, in 2001 a research center has been established in Madrid, Spain named after the doomed site i.e. Al Amiriya Center for Documentation and International Initiatives, that deals with the autrocities committed by U.S. forces during that war (they seems to fail to foresee the future and the events followed 2003 and until now).God bless the souls of Al Amiriya Shelter vicitims, and may they rest in peace, forever and ever.
