Old to go back to IraOn 26 August 2000 Munjed was finally freed Now fourteen years later he is one of the world's leading osseointegration surgeons transforming the lives of amputees with a pioneering techniue that allows them to walk againWalking Free is Munjed's extraordinary account of his journey from the brutality of Saddam Hussein's Ira to a new life in Australia and a remarkable career at the forefront of medicine I have a lot of mixed feelings with regards to this bookWe hear the news of what happens in Ira when they invade Kuwait and the first Gulf War and we sit in our comfy homes and think thats terrible and aren t we lucky here in Australia It was really interesting to read how all of this impacted an Irai residentI can t imagine what it would feel like to be frightened for your life and have to flee from your own country with no real plan of where you are going to end up He comes from a wealthy family which he freely admits and has had an easy upbringing This is also easy to see from the picture of the inside of his house in Ira He accidentally fell in with two men who were illegally immigrating and thus ended up on a boat coming to Australia He was young scared for his life no real plan these two guys had a solution for him Could he have come to Australia legally considering he had fundsThe people smugglerswords can t describe them making money and lots of it out of other people s desperation The boat trip sounded horrendousWhen they arrived in Australian waters and were picked up by the AFP and taken to Christmas Island I felt they were treated well however I felt some of the immigrants extremely disrespectful rejecting food that had been given them and demanding food that they were used to I felt the AFP treated them with respect and did they best they could given the circumstancesOn to the Curtin Detention Center That bit actually made me feel ashamed to be Australian Yes they are illegal immigrants but does that really warrant them being treated so badly and not even using names just a number Disgusting There were so many different types of people there desperate scared people who would do anything and pay anything for a new life A lot of people from poor villages who couldn t read or write from Ira and Iran which surprised me There were also the fundamentalists the animosity between different type of Muslim religions which I didn t like at allI m glad they were all processed and able to make a new life here in Australia and I was pleased to be able to read Munjed s story I certainly learnt a lot Munjed Al Muderis is a world leading osseointegration surgeon and I m happy for him good on him that he was able to realise his dream and make so many peoples lives better and is continuing to do this I really felt for him throughout this book especially how he was treated in the detention Center but when he left I felt myself not liking him all that much any hence only three stars for this bookI was discussing this book with a friend today and said how disgusting the Curtin Detention Center was He told me that approx 7 years ago whilst travelling around Australia he spent two weeks in Broome and for two Sunday s
