Description:Malala Yousafzai (born July 12, 1997) is a child rights activist from the Swat Valley in Pakistan. On October 10, 2014, she and Kailash Satyarthi were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She is the youngest recipient in the history of the Nobel Prize and by far the youngest in the history of the Nobel Peace Prize.

Malala Yousafzai was named after the poet and folk heroine Malalai von Maiwand, who led the rebellious Pashtuns against the British troops in the Battle of Maiwand in 1880. Her surname Yousafzai is common in the Swat Valley and indicates that she belongs to the Yousaf tribe. This tribal name is a pronunciation variant from Pashto and Urdu on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan for the Arabic name Yusuf (Josef). The ending -zai is typical for the individual Pashtun clans in both Afghanistan and Pakistan.

Since January 2009, when she was eleven, Yousafzai has reported on a BBC website in a blog diary under the pseudonym Gul Makai about acts of violence by the Pakistani Taliban in the Swat Valley. This terrorist organization had gained influence in the Swat Valley since 2004 and in 2007 began destroying schools for girls and murdering opposing Pakistanis. They forbade girls from going to school, listening to music, dancing and entering public spaces unveiled. In December 2008, a reporter for the BBC had the idea to let an affected schoolgirl report and approached the head of a private school, who finally suggested his daughter Malala. Her blog quickly gained prominence in Pakistan and was eventually translated into English. In 2011, her pseudonym was revealed when she was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize. She did not receive the award at the time, whereupon the government of Pakistan founded an annual National Youth Peace Prize, which was awarded to her and named after her in December 2011.

On October 9, 2012, some Taliban stopped their school bus on the way home and asked for Yousafzai. A Taliban shot them at close range. She was seriously injured in the head and neck by gunshots and had to be operated on in a military hospital in Peshawar.

The reason for the attack was, according to a letter of confession from the Taliban, the girl's commitment to educating the female population. In order to arrest the perpetrators with the help of the population, the Pakistani government offered a premium of 10 million rupees (about 74,000 euros). On April 30, 2015, the shooter and nine other accused of complicity who were caught in September 2014 were sentenced to life imprisonment in Pakistan. However, on June 5, 2015, it became known that 8 of the 10 Taliban arrested for the murder attack had not been convicted and are no longer in custody due to a lack of evidence. Only two of the attackers, including the shooter, had been sentenced to 25 years' imprisonment, which according to Pakistani law amounts to life imprisonment.

Three days after the attack, Yousafzai was relocated from the provincial capital Peshawar to Rawalpindi in the metropolitan area of ​​the state capital Islamabad. His life was still in danger. Another three days later she was flown to Great Britain and transferred to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, where otherwise wounded British soldiers are treated, to a unit that had only recently opened and specialized in gun injuries and head wounds.

Because of a tracheotomy, Malala Yousafzai was initially only able to communicate in writing with the hospital staff. The projectile that injured her in the attack had penetrated above her left eye and destroyed parts of the temporal bone and the upper jaw in the area of ​​the lower temple surface and the upper jaw stool as well as parts of the lower jaw in the area of ​​the inclined line, as a hospital spokesman explained. The bullet (already removed in Pakistan) emerged in the area of ​​the so-called “masseter roughness” and then entered the left shoulder above the shoulder blade. At the beginning of January 2013, Yousafzai left the hospital for the time being, but in the following weeks he underwent operations for plastic reconstruction of the skull and face, during which the part of the facial nerve required for hearing was restored.

After living in England for a long time, partly without her family, they also moved to Great Britain for at least three years in 2013. Her father was posted to the Pakistani Consulate in Birmingham as an Education Attaché.

Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, now the UN Special Envoy for Global Education, launched a petition in Yousafzai's name "in support of what Malala has fought for". In December 2012, the Malala Fund was founded in cooperation with UNESCO to enforce the right of children to education worldwide. Various initiatives called for Yousafzai to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Time magazine named her the second most important person of 2012 after Barack Obama. Euronews users voted her “People of the Year” 2012, and CNN users voted her “Most Fascinating Personality of the Year” 2012 after Obama.

On February 7, 2013, Yousafzai was able to leave the hospital in Birmingham. On February 8, it was announced that she had been officially nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo. From March 20, she attended Edgbaston High School for Girls in Birmingham. She expressed her wish that all girls in the world should have the opportunity to go to school. She received a contract for her biography with the British publisher Weidenfeld & Nicolson in the amount of two million pounds (around 2.3 million euros).

On July 12, 2013, her 16th birthday, she addressed the UN Youth Assembly. It was her first public speech since the attack. She handed the present UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon the petition for the education of all children with four million signatures. The UN aims to achieve this goal by the end of 2015. He announced that the UN will celebrate November 10th as "Malala Day".

On September 3, 2013, Yousafzai inaugurated the new Library of Birmingham. On October 10, she was awarded the European Parliament's Sakharov Prize.

In October 2013, she toured the United States to publish her biography and advertise the Malala Fund. On October 11, she was a guest of US President Barack Obama and his family in the White House. On the one hand, she thanked him for the US aid to Pakistan and the education of girls, but on the other hand criticized Obama's continuation of the drone war: “I also expressed my concern that drone attacks promote terrorism. These acts kill innocent victims and this leads to revulsion among the people of Pakistan. If we focus our efforts on education again, it will have a big impact. "

The presentation of the biography I am Malala, scheduled for the end of January 2014 in her home country Pakistan, was canceled at short notice by the authorities. The reason given was "safety concerns".

In February 2014, Yousafzai visited the Zaatari camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan and warned of a “lost generation” of Syrian children in view of the conditions.

In 2013, Yousafzai was the youngest candidate to date for the Nobel Peace Prize. The following year she was awarded this jointly with the Indian Kailash Satyarthi.
