Gaza A Story Of Love And War – with Mike Joseph and Sami Abu Salem

Two journalists meet to share stories over a Zoom link. One is Welsh and unable to get into Gaza. 

The other is Palestinian and unable to get out. 

As they talk, a very personal history of the Palestinian Nakba is narrated, from the expulsions of 1948 to the killing streets and tent cities of 2024. 

A generation ago the journalist’s mothers escaped two different catastrophes — the Holocaust in 1939-45 and the violent expulsion of Palestinians in 1948. We hear remarkable connections in the stories. Then their talk reaches a most unexpected question: 

Is coexistence possible? 

So this meeting becomes an exchange of impossible hopes in the ashes of war and genocide.
