Program: Need to Know #128
Broadcast Date: Nov. 12, 2010

It's almost impossible for Americans to imagine what it would be like to live fearing and distrusting our neighbors, always. But if there is one person who can express what that experience does to a person, it is Israeli journalist and novelist David Grossman. He is a bestselling author and outspoken advocate for peace in his home country. From painful experience, he knows the consequences of this seemingly endless struggle. In 2006, during Israel's second war with Lebanon, Grossman's son Uri was killed while serving in the Israeli military.
