THE LILY AMIS STORY

“The war-refugees didn’t choose to become refugees. None of them created war. They are only helpless and innocent victims of people in power, who make a fortune selling weapons and destroying countries and families. Instead of toying, support these refugees and include them, rather than isolate them. Refugees are not a disease; they are human beings with the same desires as everyone else. Give them a life; give them the chance to build independence with dignity. Give them a future. Treat them the way you’d like to be treated in desperate times! Respect, acceptance and tolerance are the magic words of kindness!” Lily Amis

In summer 2015, the refugee crises became a global issue. However, Lily Amis had already experienced war as a child in the Eighties, growing up in a war zone and living from one day to another. However, her exposure to war and daily bombings seemed nothing compared to what she was faced with, living as a refugee in Switzerland for over two decades!

Rejection, humiliation, discrimination and constant fear of existence were a living punishment - from the moment Lily entered the country as a war-refugee until today, where she is now a Swiss Citizen. Lily tells how a life without human rights, freedom and dignity is really worth nothing! The Lily Amis Story includes the two first published books of a memoir trilogy. Part One: Destination: Freedom and Part Two: Definition of Freedom.

Based on true events, Lily writes about a happy childhood growing up with her loving grandparents until war changed everything. Leaving their hometown with only two suitcases and fear, Lily and her mom hope for a safe and happy future in Europe. In Definition of Freedom, the follow-up story, Lily openly shares her experiences as a foreigner in Switzerland, where her life was constantly overshadowed by bureaucracy, discrimination, social isolation, unemployment and bullying. During the twenty-seven-year period waiting for her naturalization she experiences set-backs, betrayal and all-too-human disappointment. Despite everything, Lily and her Mom emerge stronger from every defeat and always fighting for their rights!

This is a heartfelt and brutally honest story, where Lily seeks acceptance and tolerance for all refugees entering Europe. This is her message to the world.

DESTINATION FREEDOM
The Uncensored Version

We lost everything we had and knew: our home, our existence, our family, mentality, identity, culture and language. We came to a different country and faced an uncertain future. We believed and hoped to find a new home including freedom, justice, acceptance, tolerance, security, independence, happiness and a bright future. But did we really get a fair chance to become part of our new country? Did we really get a chance to live a proper life and experience a hopeful future?

Society expects a whole lot of refugees. They expect them to become perfectly integrated. But integration always involves: give and take. It is a two-way street. I ask myself: Who is going to take responsibility for my stolen childhood?

Destination Freedom is an honest memoir and based on true events which happened between 1976 and 2002. The characters in this book are based on real people. To protect the Author’s privacy some of the names have been changed. The story is told by the Author in the present tense. On the flight back to her country in the year of 2002, Lily looks back on her life and remembers how her painful journey began.
