Dr. Khawaja Azimuddin is a gastro-intestinal surgeon in Houston, TX. When he was a young boy, Dr. Azimuddin along with his family was incarcerated in a refugee/civilian prisoner of war camp for two years following the India-Pakistan War of 1971. After almost fifty years he is finally telling his story though his book, The Boy Refugee: A Memoir From a Long-Forgotten War.
You can read my prior review of his book here.
In this episode we discuss his experiences, the goodness present in all of us…even our enemies, mental resilience, and the current plight of refugees all over the world. This was a thoughtful and important discussion that I hope you enjoy.
