             Sophie Kasiki, who is using a fake name for fear of repercussions, travelled with her four-year-old boy to Syria in September 2014, leaving behind her atheist husband who was unaware she had even converted to Islam.

She had been recruited by three men she had become friends with in Paris, who moved to Syria and urged her to join them in “paradise.”

She said: “I thought I was in control, but I realise now they were probably trained to recruit people like me.”

Once in Syria, it took her just 10 days to realise she had made a terrible mistake.

When she asked to return home, she was beaten and taken to a madaffa, a prison-like building for single western women.

There, she saw women and children cheering as they watched ISIS beheadings on television.

She said: “The women saw ISIS fighters as their Prince Charming, someone who was strong, powerful and would protect them.

“The only way out of the madaffa was to marry one. In reality, these western women were just wombs to make babies for Daesh [ISIS].”

She focused her energy into shielding her boy from the jihadi way of life.

She said: “I spoke to him all the time. I tried to impress on him things he wouldn’t forget: that his father and I loved him, that he had to be kind to girls.

“I talked in the hope it would sink in, and if something did happen to me and he fell into Daesh’s clutches he would have my voice in his head and would not be able to kill.

“I would have killed us both rather than let him became a killer, rather than let him fall into the claws of those monsters.”

One day, Kasiki discovered an unlocked door in the madaffa and walked out.

She was taken in by a local family and driven to the Turkish border in the dead of night. Everyone who helped her escape would have faced death if they were caught.

Once home, Kasiki was jailed for two months and is still facing possible charges of kidnapping.

She has reconciled with her husband and is now putting her efforts towards preventing any other French from making the same mistake she did.

She said: “I will always feel bad about taking my son into this hellish nightmare, so bad I often feel completely paralysed with guilt.

“But I have to be strong and go on. The most difficult part is over. We have escaped the clutches of these people and we are alive.

“Now I must prevent other people being drawn into this horror. What can I say? Don’t go.”
