I come from Mauritania where slavery is extremely common. I was actually enslaved by a family member of the Berber community until I was helped by relief workers in Nouakchott

Yes, I was a refugee in Germany but have been granted political asylum. The journey was actually not too difficult as I obtained a visa for travel to Germany and then applied for asylum from there. My case was quickly approved as I was a minor at the time

Could you describe your emotional experience being a slave?

What were the jobs you were required to do?

It was extremely difficult in the beginning because I barely spoke English let alone German. I was enrolled in German classes around two months after I was granted asylum. The hardest part was getting documentation etc. in Mauritania as I obviously had none before finally getting the Visa. This was arranged by the UNHRC

Absolutely fascinating, horrible and it must have been a terrifying ordeal for you but that’s really interesting

It was a difficult situation to escape and slavery is something that all Mauritanian government officials are in denial about. I was mostly required to look after elderly visitors, prepare meals, cooking and cleaning but I was barely ever allowed out, to get a proper education or have my own freedom

That’s really terrifying. I’m really upset for you. May I ask how’s your quality of life now?
