David Harris-Gershon's wife Jamie–then a graduate student–was among those severely injured.

After months of care she recovered, and the couple returned to the US where they tried to grapple with what had happened to them.

That's when David Harris-Gershon decided to try to track down the man who planted the bomb.

He's written a memoir about the experience. It's called: "What Do You Buy the Children of the Terrorist Who Tried to Kill Your Wife?"
