Known in Sayyida Zainab neighborhood as ?the mother of Iraqis,? Ahlam, is a social worker par excellence. Officially, she is the outreach coordinator for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. She is also a teacher who gave up a large part of her apartment to convert the space into a free language school for 75 pupils who come to study English and French.  Ahlam was detained and imprisoned, and the school was shut down.  After months of uncertainty about her status, Amnesty International succeeded in getting her released and transported to the United States. No details about her whereabouts are known yet.
