My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad

The Washington Post correspondent Souad Mekhennet chronicles her journey as a Muslim reporter traveling across the Middle East and Europe to interview individuals in the inner circles of al-Qaeda, the Taliban and ISIS. Unafraid to travel behind enemy lines, Mekhennet reflects in her memoir "I Was Told to Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad” on her encounters with some of the most notorious jihadists and how the terrorist threat in Europe has evolved in recent years. A book sale and signing will follow the program.

The 201718 public program season at the 9/11 Memorial Museum has been made possible in part by the David Berg Foundation.
