On April 19, 1943, young Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto rose up against their oppressors. 80 years later, we draw inspiration from their heroic actions. Our program features an insider's conversation with the co-creators of Ken Burns' blockbuster PBS docuseries, The U.S. and The Holocaust, which reveals the devastating results of America’s lack of response to the Holocaust.
Join us in commemoration. All are welcome to this free, online, community-wide event.
