Three years in hell

Mosul has many names within Iraq. The pearl of the north or Um al-rabi´ian which translates to the city of two springs. This is because autumn and spring are so alike.

Inhabited since Assyrian times, the city has a unique place in Iraq’s rich cultural and historical landscape. The soul of the city was its old town. Only if your family was born here, you can call yourself a Moslawi, a origin citizen of Mosul. After the military defeat of the Islamic State (IS), the old town is left in rubbles.

But did its soul survive?
