Meet the Somalis - extraordinary comics published by the Open Society Foundation

Meet the Somalis is a collection of 14 illustrated stories depicting the real life experiences of Somalis in seven cities in Europe, one of them Helsinki.

The stories focus on challenges faced by Somali migrants in Europe, such as education, housing, media, employment, political participation, and identity. They were told to author Benjamin Dix and made into comics by artist Lindsay Pollock.
Check it out, it's worthwhile, as the 14 stories paint a vivid and obviously quite true picture of what it means to be a Somali in Europe. The publication is available on:

It is also available as a downloadable pdf-file (62 pages).
