On Miami Valley StoryCorps we bring you conversations between local people who went to the StoryCorps booth in Dayton in 2014. Today, we hear Khursid Ahmad tell his daughter-in-law Asfia Ahmad about the journey that brought him to America. Khursid's family had to flee their village of Bhandara, India in the 1940s because of civil unrest that was especially dangerous for Muslims.

This interview was edited by Community Voices producer Amy Harper.
