Murad, who belongs to the Yazidi minority was enslaved and tortured by Islamic State militants in 2014, and lost 18 members of her family. She was repeatedly subjected to rape and other abuses while being kept in captivity until she fled.
Murad was one of about 7,000 women and girls captured in northwest Iraq in August 2014 and held by Islamic State in Mosul, where she was tortured and raped. She escaped after three months and reached Germany.
Nadia Murad, a survivor of sexual violence by the Islamic State, and Dr Denis Mukwege, a gynecological surgeon, were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their campaigns against the use of rape as a weapon of war.
