Originally from Syria, brothers Omar and Saad Al Kassab reflect on their path into Australia as refugees. It's a story that features fear and violence, bravery and friendship, the global connection of the scouting movement, and a humble dictionary. Told with great courage, honesty and humour, they highlight the experiences they've shared with thousands of others fleeing war torn Syria, and their hopes for the future.
Omar and Saad Al Kassab were 17 and 14 respectively when the Syrian Civil War broke out.
Omar actively participated in demonstrations for peace and democracy in Syria and in April of 2013, whilst studying Engineering at university, he was arrested and tortured.
Their story includes their humanitarian work alongside fellow Scouts, imprisonment, the loss of friends and family and finally, their escape to a new life in Australia.
Omar and Saad are passionate about promoting understanding and awareness of the situation facing Syria and its citizens, at a time when the world is struggling to deal with the worst humanitarian crisis since the Second World War. In Australia, they have actively reconnected with Scouts movement and resumed their education. Omar is now studying towards a Bachelor of Business and Saad is currently completing Year 12.
