As a storyteller, Hamed Abboud is a cultural connector and bridge builder par excellence. In his new book, written in German, he tells of his upbringing in the Syrian provincial town of Deir al-Zor, where his father worked as a maths teacher and owned a bakery.

He weaves an enchanting tapestry of stories from remembered episodes, allowing the life of the Abboud family to appear before our eyes like little film scenes.
