You can see, in this beautiful, soft face, the gentle soul of a professional who dedicated her life to helping others. A soul with hopes, fears, dreams, just like the rest of us. And now she is dead. For being a dentist.
We are posting this photograph in memory of Dr. Rou’aa Diab, a female dentist, who was arrested by the Islamic State on August 22, 2014.
She was arrested with four others in Al-Mayadeen, a city on the border of Iraq.
Without a trial, Diab was charged with the crime of “treating male patients”, and was executed by decapitation.
Dr. Diab was was beheaded for the crime of helping prevent and treat dental disease. She should be recognised by the dental community, and the world community, for her innocence, and her bravery and dedication.
And her name should never be forgotten.
May you rest in peace Dr. Rou’aa Diab.
