Nury Turkel grows up with a deep sense of seeking freedom and justice for his people and that becomes a compass whose direction he could not ignore. Listening to Nury one can't help but be drawn by his resolve and determination to stop running and fight for himself, his family and millions of people whom he will never meet. You’ll be pleasantly surprised how Nury offers his horrific story as a solid framework for you and i to keep standing when it’s all but easier to just give up.
