Warner, Rachel, Ed.
This multi-language (French, English, Kikongo, and Lingala) collection of autobiographical writing by refugees from Zairean children and young adults living in Britain is illustrated with photographs and children's drawings and includes comprehensive country introductions. In the collection, young people give their accounts of migration and explore how their identities are changing in their new country. The writings can be a useful resource for teachers, particularly those who want to bring a global dimension to learning. Following a "Factbox" (country introduction) and an introduction for teachers that provides historical background on Zaire, the collection is divided into the following sections and each section has several writings: (1) "Souvenirs du Zaire" ("Memories of Zaire"); (2) "La Vie au Zaire" ("Life in Zaire"); (3) "Oppression et Guerre" ("Oppression and War"); (4) "Ma Vie" ("My Life"); (5) "Depart du Zaire" ("Leaving Zaire"); (6) "Arrivee en Angleterre" ("Arriving in England"); (7) "La Vie en Grande-Bretagne" ("Life in Britain"); (8) "Etre Refugie" ("Being a Refugee"); and (9) "Espoir pour L'Avenir" ("Hopes for the Future"). Includes a resources section that lists books, briefing papers, fact sheets, materials on refugees, and useful addresses. (BT)
