From Gaza to Sweden: Tamam Abou Hamidan’s journey to political success

On a quiet winter morning in Olofstrom, Tamam Abou Hamidan and her daughter Violeta reflect on life after fleeing Gaza. From a pizza restaurant worker to mayor, Tamam’s journey in Sweden unfolds. Despite political success, she remains haunted by the ongoing plight in Gaza, using her voice to protest and feeling the weight of the children left behind.

Al Jazeera’s Paul Rhys reports from Karlskrona, Sweden.
