Farväl välkommen hem av Marina Andersson

Marina är kristen Assyrier/Syrian från Turkiet och kom till Göteborg sommaren 1985.

Marina har skrivit boken ”Farväl! Välkommen hem. Hon berättar om sin livsresa, om förluster men också om vinster, hur hon med bara fem års skolbakgrund från sitt hemland började läsa till sjuksköterska, hur hon integrerade sig i svenska samhället och inbjuder till samtal.

CANCELLED! Please note this lecture has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances.
