    In the heart of southwest Syria, the city of Daraa lies close to the Jordanian border and is a short, two-hour drive from the capital city of Damascus. It was once famed for its agriculture, producing figs, apples, olives, and pomegranates that were exported far and wide. It was even said that Daraa's abundance could feed the entirety of Syria.

    But time, as it often does, had different plans for Daraa. By 2007, a harrowing drought had consumed Syria. Farmers, forced to abandon the fields they once loved, sought refuge and work in the cities, with Daraa being a sanctuary for many. Some say this massive upheaval and displacement sowed the seeds of discontent that, by 2011, erupted into powerful protests. This, of course, would turn into the horrific Syrian Civil War.

    But let’s rewind back to 2001, when Daraa was still a safe haven and six-year-old Doaa Al Zamel was growing up. A new dawn was rising in Syria, with Bashar al-Assad taking up the presidency after the long reign of his father, Hafez. A collective breath of hope was held by the Syrian populace; they were envisioning a brighter future under this young leader. The air was thick with anticipation – a belief that the oppressive emergency law, long used as a shield to stifle dissent, would finally be lifted and herald in a new era of freedoms and rights.

    But throughout the rest of Doaa’s childhood, these changes didn’t surface. And then, in 2010, everything changed. A young Tunisian named Mohamed Bouazizi, driven by despair and frustration, set himself ablaze. This act was more than just a personal outcry – it was the spark that ignited the Arab Spring.

    The news spread, and the streets of Daraa and beyond hummed with excitement and trepidation. There were those who dreamed of change, like young Doaa, yearning for a world where her aspirations were not tethered by tradition. Would Syria, too, feel the tremors of revolution? 

    As the first protests began to emerge across the Arab world, millions of people, including the Al Zamel family, were filled with hope. What might this ripple effect mean for them and their Syrian homeland?

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
