Reading and Conversation
Tima Kurdi with Lawrence Scanlan

For Canadian immigrant Tima Kurdi, the aunt of Syrian refugee Alan Kurdi, private tragedy became universal symbol when the toddler's death on a Mediterranean beach captured worldwide public imagination. Tima speaks with author Lawrence Scanlan about her attempts to find peace after their family tragedy and shares her hope that war somehow can change us for the better. She talks about the personal and societal devastation of war, and the difficulty of leaving home to put down roots in a new world.
