My Father Was a Freedom Fighter: Gaza's Untold Story
The frontline in the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, Gaza is constantly reported as a place of violence and terror.

At the heart of Baroud's tale is the story of his father who, driven out of his village to a refugee camp, took up arms to fight the occupation while trying to raise a family.
