I was 15 when I was arrested and committed to some of the most brutal prisons in Syria. Now I am free, but my mind never will be
For the 10 months I spent as a detainee in the prisons of Bashar al-Assad, I only saw my family in my dreams. At night, the screams would stop for an hour or two, and I could close my eyes and remember what it was like to be human. When I slept, I would return to my life.
