Lessons in Islam – A young teacher breaks taboos in Germany

Lamy Kaddor, born in Germany to a Syrian father, wants to make her religion more accessible to children and young people. She’s written two books about Islam, a children’s Koran and a text book – both in German. The books contain illustrations depicting the prophet Mohammed – a practice forbidden by Islam. Conservative muslim scholars are not impressed by Kaddor’s work. But the kids love the open atmosphere in her classes, where no question is taboo. Now, her teaching methods could be used as a model for lessons in the subject in schools around the country.
