Stolen Lives: Twenty Years in a Desert Jail, by Malika Oufkir

Just finished reading “Stolen Lives: Twenty Years in a Desert Jail“, by Malika Oufkir.

It tells the story of Malika Oufkir’s family, eldest daughter of General Mohamed Oufkir, the King Hassan II of Morocco‘s closest aide. It’s also a book about freedom, politics and personal resilience.

After a failed coupe d’etat organized by General Oufkir in 1972 and his suicide (his body, however, was found with several bullet wounds), Malika and her family are imprisoned for 15 years. She was finally able to leave Morocco in 1996.

You can get the book from Amazon here.
