Amir’s Blue Elephant documents the journey of Melissa Hekkers (the author of the book) during her time volunteering to help thousands of refugees seeking safety in Europe. Pushing the boundaries of creative non-fiction, Hekkers recreates the moments that marked her the most, whilst volunteering in refugee camps in Lesvos, Greece, and during her ongoing involvement with the refugee community in Cyprus. Told through the eyes of a woman struggling to understand the realities asylum seekers are thrown into, this is the story of people fighting for the fragile right to freedom and liberty, the right to life itself.
Our firm is most proud to have contributed to the cost for the translation of this important book into Greek.
