Blood is Blood (Part 2): The Lemon Tree

A house with a lemon tree in the yard is claimed by two families but only one can live in it. It was built by a Palestinian family in 1936, then in 1948 taken from that family and given to a Jewish family of Holocaust survivors. The Arab family had a son, Bashir, six years old in 1948. The Jewish family had a daughter; Dalia. Years later Bashir returns to his old family home, meets Dalia and asks if he can come in and look around. "The Lemon Tree" is a remarkable story of friendship across a tough and intractable divide, a friendship which will be severely tested

Living Out Loud The Spanish Crucible - Episode 1 (Part 1) Nov 9, 2012 | 24:59"The road to Spain" - part 1 of two special episodes The Spanish civil war, 1936 -1939. More than 1600 Canadians went to fight to defend its elected government against a military coup led by General Francisco Franco. Over 400 of them died in battle or went missing. The exact figures will never be known. Who were these men? Why did they volunteer to risk their lives for a cause some of them hardly knew anything about? How did they fight? How did they die? And why were the survivors who limped home in defeat treated so badly - some blacklisted - even spied on by police and government officials? Thanks to a remarkable archive of recordings made nearly fifty years ago but until now never broadcast we can answer those questions and present, for the first time, the Spanish civil war as witnessed by Canadians who fought on the front lines. The story is told in two special editions of Living out Loud.
