Follow Israel Radio on
From Prison to Freedom! A Passover Special radio interview with a man (and his wife) unjustly accused of a crime they did not commit. Daniel Davenport-Freedman and his (now) wife, Shannah Davenport-Freedman were thrown into prison for a decade in the USA. Their lawyers were public defendants who didn't seem to coordinate their defense, and their judge is reported to have been reading a novel throughout the trial. No physical evidence linked them to the crime they were accused of (arson). And yet, they were convicted. How could this happen? Hear this dramatic story of life in a prison cell, lack of Jewish rights, a month of darkness, miracles, and finally after almost a decade, freedom to come and make aliyah to Israel! Hear about their new lives, and how they'ed prefer to live in Israel cleaning toilets, than not be here! A story of bondage to freedom. A 'Don't miss' show!
