In this beautiful video Asrin Rahmani, an Iranian Kurdish refugee, describes how her flowers nourished her soul and spirit during lockdown, how she made peace with nature during the pandemic, and the symbolic power of flowers and the song of the nightingale in Persian literature, poetry and art.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
