Alexandra Büchler in conversation with Rabab Haidar
Latakia-born Rabab Haidar is a prose writer and journalist in Arabic and English, who has lived in Berlin since 2018. She talks about how being connected to writers in Germany while still living in Syria helped her and gave her a sense of safety, and about writing in a cultural and linguistic in-between space after reassessing the unpublished work she brought with her to Germany and adopting a different viewpoint to write about the migrant experience.
