IBZ is an organisation, based in KarlsRuhe, Germany, which promotes cultural dialogue on political, inter-religious and intercultural issues.
The short story ‘A Pair Of Jeans’ is a regular part of education in Germany now, as for many years it has been included in literature studied for The Abitur.
Its no surprise then that Qaisra is a frequent visitor to Germany where she is often invited to speak and lecture on her work.
