in the cemeteries of old American industrial towns, one confined rows of gravestones carved with the Muslim star and crescent. Some of the graves even have poetry written in Ottoman Turkish. Who were these people? Why did they come to America? The graves, unfortunately, cannot speak. Americans know almost nothing about the role that these people played in the development of their country. And this is not a story that could be discovered Onley in the libraries or online. It is found in graveyards, in the streets and in the ruins of old factories. American scholar Todd Fine, an expert on the Manhattan neighborhood of Little Syria, will join us first.
