I finished reading this book this afternoon and haven t been able to stop thinking about it I m uite a conservative fairly right wing Aussie but I also demand facts and the complete silence media ban now the ban on even speaking of the conditions of asylum seekers made me confront the uncomfortable uestion does the country that I love so much have concentration camps I admit I ve wondered for a while and probably didn t want to know I wanted to proudly tell the world how perfect Australia is but we are notThat uestion led me in search of books from individuals who have experienced these detention centres in this case on shore they have since been moved offshore and I read Munjed s story only putting it down when I had to go to work It s an almost unbelievable tale of survival a reminder that life under Saddam Hussein was not peaceful nor stable and it pulls back the curtain on how Australia treated and I assume still treats asylum seekers I trust Munjed s account He has photographs to back up his account he is largely secular and highly intelligent able to give us insight into the other asylum seekers both good and bad as well as the guards and government officialsOne of the first things that appauled me about the country that I love so much is that detainees were referred to by a number never a name a tactic used by many a totalitarian regime to dehumanise people and in this instance it worked How bad must things be that going to prison alongside murderers and pedophiles is paradise compared to the Curtain Detention Centre No wonder the media was banned from reporting onvisitingphotographing these facilities They are appauling I used to watch a TV series Young Lions and an episode was banned by the government because it featured just a fictionalised account of a detention centre I knew then that things must be bad if the government was clamping down this way I just don t think I was ready to confront itYou ll learn that not only were people referred to only by a number but children were left in the camp with no education and exposed to abuse from other detainees the heat rain snakes etc had everyone so on edge its no wonder fights broke out and Munjed was told constantly to go back to Ira where he would be certainly tortured killed that Australians don t want him hereFrankly it s a miracle that he remained a good person and that he never lost his ambition to continue practicing medicine and now he restores literally the lives and limbs of Australians He is an asset to this country and we are very lucky to have himVery importantly he discusses how Australia needs to change its attitudes to refugees Not all people are like Munjed Many are uneducated and are driven to the ghettos and the fringes of society They play right into the hands of extremists who welcome them with open arms when we do not He makes excellent recommendations on how we can address this I only hope that enough people in power pay attention Even if they do not we all can play a small part in welcoming refugees when they move into in our local communities They have suffered enough Let s make it stop with us Pillar of Fire (The

Reading this book was straying REALLY FAR from my comfort zone of books Firstly it s an autobiography which I admit is the first one i ve ever read excluding justice game mao s last dancer secondly it s focused uite a bit on the socialpolitical aspects of modern warfare which I tend to avoid mostly in any genreI must say that I was pleasantly surprised in fact I ll even go as far to say that I was absolutely mindblown after reading this book It has SERIOUSLY made me reflect upon modern day political situations asylum seekers and the war in Ira from a TOTALLY different perspective to that presented in the media conflicting perspectives lol BUT YES Munjed Al Muderis is actually such an inspiration and just reading his story and hardships makes me root for him This book is basically giving the authorities a motherfuckers look at me nowYes munjed LOOK AT U NOW pls teach me the ways only thing I can whine about is that I hoped that there would be medical related stories since the book was mainly about his escape but OH WELL still enjoyed it nonetheless

Munjed Al Muderis Ï 6 READ & DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD Walking Free ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Jed's life changed forever He escaped to Indonesia where he boarded a filthy overcrowded refugee boat bound for AustraliaLike his fellow passengers he hoped for a new life free from fear and oppression but for ten months he was incarcerated in what became known as the worst of the refugee camps Curtin Detention Centre in Western Australia There he was known only by a number locked in solitary confinement and repeatedly t. Free tells the incredible story of Irai born surgeon Munjed Al Muderis a man who faced terrible odds and circumstances to become one of the world s leading osseointegration surgeons Set during the time when Ira is first invaded Muderis is training to become a surgeon when he faces a terrible choice a suad of Military Police the bad guys arrive at his hospital and demand that he and his team perform surgery and remove the ears on a group of army deserters Out of three options main be killed or flee Muderis chooses to flee leading him to a long dangerous journey that takes him to Australia However when Muderis finally makes it to Australia he faces another challenge the anguishes of Australia s refugee campsuite frankly Muderis s story is amazing Bone chilling and harrowing at times frustrating at others the circumstances that Murderis survives are simply astounding and that s without taking in the courage and fortitude that Muderis has throughoutAs I stated in the opening paragraph of this review I m interested in war history particularly if it s from an unusual perspective In this regard Walking Free ticked the boxes Here is an incredible narrator who defied all odds to become a leader in his field and one who can show us into the lives of those that we so rarely have the chance to hear from Amazing stuff yes But still despite all this I had two big problems with Walking Free that stopped it from being a fantastic readFirstly the problem I ve found with war memoirs is if they aren t written well or importantly if they aren t written by the narrator then they uickly lose steam When they ve been filtered through from narrator to writer as is the case with Walking Free the emotions nuances and most importantly the voice gets lost amongst all the facts Instead of the cadences feelings and little pieces of mise en scene we re left with facts devoid of spirit a weird irony considering the subject matter As any good author or editor will tell you a great book is all about showing rather than telling the reader what is occurring and this is something that seems to fall by the wayside in Walking Free As a reader I m not given the opportunity to discover things for myself to imagine places atmosphere or emotions instead I m being directed forcibly through event after eventSecondly one aspect of Muderis s life that I was fascinated by was his work as an osseointegration surgeon or in layman s terms Muderis creates robotic arms and legs and attaches them to amputees Seriously can you think of a impressive job Yet Muderis s work in this field is pushed right up until the final chapter as though this aspect of his life isn t importantWalking Free is an incredible story and Munjed Al Muderis is clearly a courageous man but even this wasn t enough to keep me hooked Some people may very well love this memoir but for those who need than just facts to get them through a book then I d give this one a miss
