Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Jessica Stern is one of the world's foremost experts on terrorism. In her book Denial: A Memoir of Terror, Stern recounts her own brutal rape at age fifteen. Stern tells Anne Strainchamps that coming to understand her own terror and its after-effects has been very valuable in helping her choose and continue to do her life's work.

Next, Rahna Riko Rizzuto is the author of Hiroshima in the Morning. She tells Jim Fleming that she was unclear how to elicit the stories of Hiroshima survivors. She wanted to be sensitive and not further traumatize people over a long ago horror. And then September 11th happened.

Then, Ingrid Betancourt was abducted by Marxist rebels and held captive in the jungle for 6 years. She tells the story of her ordeal in a book called Even Silence Has an End. Betancourt talks with Steve Paulson about how she struggled to keep her soul alive and what it was like to finally be rescued.

And finally, David Isay is the founder and president of StoryCorps which records first person narratives by Americans from all backgrounds. David tells Anne Strainchamps why peoples' stories are so powerful, both for the listeners and for the people who tell them. [Broadcast Date: November 10, 2010]

Listen to Even Silence Has an End by Ingrid Betancourt.
