A short film made by Sonova shows Abdel’s delight as he enjoys a trip out in the Mount Lebanon mountain range. The Syrian refugee boy’s hearing aids have made him a part of the world that surrounds him with all its wonderful sounds. Author Nadja Einzmann was caught up in Abdel’s enchantment and has transformed it into poetry.
The author, Nadja Einzmann, who was born in 1974 and now lives in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, has published poetry and two volumes of short stories.
Her tales explore feelings both great small, and her sensitively crafted portraits shine a light not only on the lives of those around us, but also on our own lives – and life itself.
"Abdel is still so young and has been through so much. The fact that he has lost none of his openness and enthusiasm, despite everything, is truly remarkable.”
