Report about Judayda, Aleppo on BBC

I have been working with the BBC series “Museum of Lost Objects.”  This week, a new episode, “Return to Aleppo,” aired featuring the story of Zahed Tajedden, whose home in Judayda Quarter was converted into an impromtu hospital during the war.  I shared some of my reflections on the history of Judayda, the Christian quarter of Aleppo, which I researched in the Syrian National Archives before they were closed in 2012.  Thank you Maryam Maruf and Kanish Tharoor including me in this amazing bit of journalism!  Listen to the report here on BBC Radio 4.
