70 Years After the Holocaust

Written by Fred Vigeant, Director of Programming and Promotions for TV and Radio | Apr 1, 2015 4:00 PM

Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust examines the ways in which the Holocaust continues to inform contemporary discussions about hate speech, propaganda, and human rights. We hear stories from people confronting hatred in their lives, their communities, and sometimes in their own hearts.

We hear how easily a young boy got recruited by skinheads in Pennsylvania, how one man is working to reshape international criminal law after the genocide in Rwanda, and how both an imam and a heavy metal rock band confront hatred in their communities. 

Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust is narrated by Morgan Freeman, and produced by United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and independent producer Melissa Allison.

Hear this special program Saturday April 11 at 8:00pm on WITF 89.5 & 93.3
