Podcast
“An Orange Grove’s Recollection”
Produced and presented by Jinan Silwadi

Saturday, 15 May | 12:00

How does a place vanish completely from the imagination? How does a scent evoke within us the sense of a faraway place? Where does memory hide, only to return sharp as a knife?

In this podcast, we’ll discover Hoda Batshoun’s journey of exile from Jaffa, the exile of her memory itself and its sudden, unexpected return.
