-- ABC News "20/20" followed a group of Iraqi Christian refugees fleeing ISIS attacks in their homeland as they made their journey from their camp in Erbil, Iraq, to Slovakia to start a new life. The people who sought refuge in Erbil came from Syria and Iraq, escaping violence and persecution. They are a multi-ethnic, socially diverse and multi-religious group.
