Host John Shuck speaks with Dr. Nahida Gordon, a Palestinian-American who was nine years old when she and her parents had to leave their home in Jaffa in 1948.  Palestinians refer to this event as Nakba or Catastrophe.   She still has the keys to her childhood home.  In her book, Palestine Is Our Home:  Voices of Loss, Courage, and Steadfastness, she brings to the West the voices of Palestinians, their culture, their resistence to Israeli occupation, and their hope to return to their homeland.
