McGowan Quoted on Deir Yassin

Remembering Deir Yassin was the topic of an article in the May 4 West Paterson, N.J., Herald News that quoted Dan McGowan, professor of economics. Titled “Massacre Remembered,” the story was about a dinner attended by about 50 Palestinians to commemorate the massacre and raise funds for a a Deir Yassin memorial in South Paterson, home to one of the largest Palestinian populations in the United States.

“I think it's the single most important piece of 20th-century Palestinian history. It's something that virtually 100 percent of Palestinians know about,” said Daniel McGowan, who is executive director of Deir Yassin Remembered.
