Guest: Janine di Giovanni

War reporter JANINE DI GIOVANNI arrived in Syria a year after the conflict started. She spent the next four years covering Syria and watching as the Arab Spring revolution turned into a brutal and bloody civil war. She reported on the rape, torture, bombings that have destroyed the country and its people, killing 222,000 and displacing four million.  Di Giovanni writes about the devastation and suffering of civilians in wartime Syria, how they survive and how they retain their humanity, in her new book The Morning They Came for Us: Dispatches from Syria.
