The ISIS children – why don’t we bring them back?

Aaliya from Hamburg has spent most of her life in war. She is three years old when her mother joins the IS and kidnapped the girl to Syria without the knowledge of her father Danisch. He has been fearing for the life of his daughter, who is now in a Kurdish prison camp for IS women and their children, for five years. But so far he has not managed to bring his daughter home. Aaliya is one of many German children who have lived in the socalled Islamic State. We have been accompanying their families in Germany for months and ask: Why don’t we bring the IS children back?
