The US and the Holocaust (PBS): The three-part series by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein tells the story of how Americans grappled with one of the greatest humanitarian crises of the twentieth century, and how it challenged the ideals of our democracy. Per PBS: “The film dispels competing myths that Americans were either ignorant of what was happening to the Jews in Europe, or that they just looked on with heartless indifference. The truth is much more nuanced and complicated, and the challenges faced by the American people raise questions that remain vital to our society today: What is America’s role as a land of immigrants? What are a country’s responsibilities to intervene in humanitarian crises? What should our leaders and the press do to shape public opinion? What can individuals do if governments fail to act?” Part one will premiere tonight, but due to the Queen’s funeral, episode two will air on Tuesday, September 20, and episode three on Wednesday, September 21. 8 p.m. E.T. (view local listings) on PBS, PBS.org and the PBS Video App.
