Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust

Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust

Sun, 01/24/2016 - 9:00pm

In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day (January 27th), AM 1370 presents Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust on Sunday, January 24, 2016 at 9 p.m. The hour-long program examines the ways in which the Holocaust continues to inform contemporary discussions about hate speech, propaganda, and human rights.

Listeners will 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. They'll also hear from a former skinhead, an imam, a prosecutor for the Rwandan genocide trials---people speaking from many perspectives---including heavy metal singer David Draiman, filmmaker Errol Morris, and Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Elie Wiesel.

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.
