Me Ṭurcabdin l Berlin From Turabdin to Berlin
Bëṯër me d u Barṣawmo mšawarle bi aṯto, huwe fusqono d nuqli l Almanya. After Barṣawmo had consulted with his wife, they decided to move to Germany.
B Berlin këtwalle more w iḏice ġäläbe, mawxa abici d nuqli l Berlin. In Berlin they had many relatives and acquaintances, therefore they wanted to move to Berlin.
Hawxa mërre w hawxa sëmme. Maṭën l Berlin ḥa b nisën alfo w tšacmo w ḥammëš w tëšci (1995). No sooner said than done. They arrived in Berlin on 1 April 1995.
B Berlin mcawni mam moraṯṯe hul d makralle bayto. In Berlin they were supported by their relatives until they rented a house.
An nacime bdalle d ëzzën li madrašto w ëšmo ëšmo u Barṣawmo w i iqarṯayḏe rakiwi b Berlin. The children started going to school and slowly Barṣawmo and his family settled in Berlin.
Elo u Barṣawmo w i Ḥana i aṯtayḏe cal d latwalle cwodo, loṯewalle ṣäbër. But Barṣawmo and his wife Ḥana got bored because they did not have a job.
Hënne b Ṭurcabdin yalife du cwodo wayne. Karixi harke w tamo cal cwodo, lo mqafalle, miḏe d lišono Almanoyo lëḏciwa. In Turabdin they were used to working. They searched around for a job but they could not find one because they did not know the German language.
Bi ḥarayto u Barṣawmo mërle: “Hawxa lo kowe. Latyo lo yawmo w lo tre. Kolozam saymina mede.” Mërle li Ḥana: “Qay lo kofëtḥinalan dukano du dahwo, xud hayo d këtwaylan b Mëḏyaḏ?” Finally Barṣawmo said: „It cannot go on like this. This does not concern a short period of time. We have to do something.“ He said to Ḥana: „Why don’t we open a jewelry shop like the one we had in Midyat?“
I Ḥana mërla: “Rënyo kayiso yo, elo az zuze qëṭro ne.” Ḥana replied: „It is a good idea, but it is difficult to finance it.“
U Barṣawmo mërle: “Gëd ṭëlbina zuze mam morayḏan, häka mcawannallan, lo kofoyaš qëṭro.” Barṣawmo replied: „We will ask our relatives for money; if they support us there won’t be a problem.“
Qayëm hiye w i Ḥana azzën mdayanne zuze mam moraṯṯe. Am moraṯṯe ste b iḏo ftëḥto huwanne. That is how he and Ḥana borrowed money from their relatives. Their relatives lent them money generously.
Hawxa qadiri fëtḥi dukano nacëmto du dahwo. That is how they managed to open a small jewelry shop.
Cam u zabno šuġla di iqarṯo mcadal. Hawëlle zuze, huwe ad dayne w zwënne raḏayto. Over time the situation of the family improved. They made profits, they paid off their debts and bought a car.
Fayëš kocayši ḥaye basime. An nacimaṯṯe ste yalifi u lišono w sëmmanne ḥawrone. They now live a good life. Their children have learned the language and have made friends.
