Slave by Mende Nazer and Damien Lewis

This is a true story of a girl who was sold into slavery when she was twelve.  It all began one night in 1993, when the Arab raiders rode into her village in the remote Nuba mountains of Sudan, murdering the adults and capturing children.  Mende was one of them.  She then was sold to an Arab woman in Khartoum. For seven years she was kept as a domestic slave. After that she was sent to work for another master, a diplomat working in United Kingdom. She finally managed to escape to freedom in year 2000. Slave is a story beyond belief, a shocking insight of the modern day slavery.
