Watch an inspiring evening of conversation and storytelling with Nadia Murad Basee Taha — a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Yazidi human rights activist and the first Goodwill Ambassador for the Dignity of Survivors of Human Trafficking for the United Nations. Murad discusses her upcoming book, “The Last Girl: My Story of Captivity, and My Fight Against the Islamic State,” described as an intimate memoir of survival, with New York Times foreign correspondent Somini Sengupta. Nadia’s story — as a witness to the Islamic State’s brutality, a survivor of rape, a refugee, a Yazidi — is a call to action, a testament to the human will to survive and a love letter to a lost country, a fragile community and a family torn apart by war. Taped: November 9, 2017.
