Of the approximately 1.5 million Yazidis in the world, the largest number - more than 550,000 - lived in Iraq, with fewer in Turkey and Syria. Decades of immigration led to the fact that a large number of Yazidis migrated to Europe, especially to Germany, which received about 150,000 Yazidis, in addition to Sweden, France, Belgium and Russia.

But since ISIS attacked Sinjar in 2014, almost 100,000 Yazidis have emigrated from Iraq to Europe, the US, Australia and Canada. Today, in northwest Iraq, about 360,000 people are still living in displaced persons camps. Only a few thousand were able to return to Sinjar, where most of the houses are still in ruins and there is not enough electricity, clean water and hospitals.

The Yazidis say that they have suffered 74 persecutions and genocides throughout their history, according to the Yazidi Supreme Spiritual Council of Iraq, the last and most terrible of which occurred as a result of an ISIS attack in 2014.
