In the summer of 1989 I went to visit my dear friend Ahmed in Syria. This is his story and the stories of so many other people I met... ...and then we move fast forward to present time. Today, the 26th of August 2016 - “Updates and Thoughts on my book about Syria”: In 1990 I began writing my book about my personal experiences in Syria. I was still a very young man and memories from my time in Syria were crystal clear and still dripping from the excitement. After about 60 pages I ran out of steam and it wasn’t until 20 years later that I decided to finish my book with all of its unusual stories. During the writing process the uprising in Syria began March 2011. I was conflicted by it and tried a few times to draw some parallels from the new escalating conflict to the stories in my book. But I soon realized that my book about Syria, which is very personal and at times extreme, had to be a periodic piece, an image of the moment with absolutely no references to the future or present times... But what my book does bring to readers who are more interested in the current events rather than the past, is an exclusive insight into the Syrian Arab mentality. A chance to understand why people in this region of the world are particularly addicted to vengeance and brutal violence, and why, perhaps, they have such a short sighted understanding of their own future. Though my book is a patchwork of imperfections and seemingly trifling details, it reflects, now more than ever, upon the clashes between civilizations. Those captured by modern technology and the process of evolution, embracing it as it is. And those who take the new comforts for granted, but insist to continue living in the shadows of the Middle Ages. EMBRACED – In Syria with Love Heini Grünbaum

Film director and writer Heini Grünbaum was born the 1 of September 1966 in Denmark, Europe. He was born with a Royal Robe and had long dark hair. The nurses at the hospital called him (The) Beatles because of the long dark hair. So what is a Royal Robe you might ask? To be born with a Royal Robe, or better know by some as the caul, sometimes referred to as a Bubble boy, means that you get born inside an intact amniotic sac. Some legends suggest that being born with the caul means you will never drown. Heini Grünbaum is also a Freediver, so hopefully this legend is true ;-) In 2011 film director Heini Grünbaum decided to publish his screenplays and start writing books. His first self publishing material is a very personal screenplay named PLAN B PARADISE. The film still hasn't materialized into the big screen all though the script (original screenplay) is from 2005. ‘Many films are based on books, so the moviegoers already know the complete story before they enter the cinema,’ says Heini Grünbaum. ‘Why not do the same with films based on original screenplays?! Actually the Idea of publishing PLAN B PARADISE “as is” was given to my by my father who told me that when he was a kid, they used to read theater plays in school. Theater plays and screenplays have their own music, so to speak. It also gives the reader a chance to have an insight of the films visual style as well, all though the screenplay still hasn't materialized into a film.’ Back in 1990 Heini Grünbaum started to write his first book, a biographical story about his stay in Syria in 1989. He never finished the book... before now. In 2010 Heini Grünbaum picked up the fifty so pages he had written in 1990 and started finishing his book about Syria. And now, after more than three years of hard work, the book is finally ready! Heini Grünbaum’s next book is entirely based on his own personal experiences with the opposite sex: "Sex and the Women or: How I learned to appreciate the Feel of the Pussy" If you need more information about Heini Grünbaum, or have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact Heini Grünbaum at: firstname.lastname@example.org Life is Beautiful <3
