"Was I a Stranger in My Homeland?" is a true story about a little girl who tries to understand the horrors and genocide that war brings to the people and ones homeland.

Malavi was born in Tromso, Norway to "Tamil" parents who had fled their native home land of Tamil Eelam and though living in a very multicultural society in Norway, upon hearing her parents and relatives tell of the beauty and culture of their homeland, Malavi longs to visit Tamil Eelam and experience if for herself.

This relatively short story tells of the fight her native people have gone through and are still going through at the hands of Sri Lankan government and military in particular.

This book may be small in many respects but it has a beauty in the way it has been printed and from the inclusion of many of the author's family pictures. I found it very educational and interesting and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
