Mosul Eye, the Untold Stories under ISIS.
April 19, 2022 | 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
After ISIS took over Mosul in 2014, Iraqi historian Omar Mohammed decided to begin an anonymous blog called Mosul Eye to document atrocities committed by the terrorist group. Despite the constant threat to his life, Mohammed updated the blog diligently for over a year and was able to save many lives through his journalism and geolocation of trapped families. Now that Mosul has been liberated, Mohammed reflects upon the destruction left in ISIS’ wake, and he is determined to bring back music and art to his richly cultural and historic city.
