Reminder: PBS Three Part Documentary on Holocaust to Air September 18-20, 2022 #announcements #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen


The U.S. and the Holocaust will premiere on PBS September 18, 2022. Check with your local cable provider for the station. The U.S. and The Holocaust, a new three-part , six-hour documentary directed and produced by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein, explores America’s response to one of the greatest humanitarian crises in history. Americans consider themselves a “nation of immigrants,” but as the catastrophe of the Holocaust unfolded in Europe, the United States proved unwilling to open its doors to more than a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of desperate people seeking refuge. Through riveting firsthand testimony of witnesses and survivors who as children endured persecution, violence and flight as their families tried to escape Hitler, this series delves deeply into the tragic human consequences of public indifference, bureaucratic red tape and restrictive quota laws in America. The series will air September 18, 19 and 20, at 8:00-10:00 p.m. eastern/pacific 7:00-9:00 PM Central (check local listings) on PBS,

I believe this is running in North America. I do not know if it will show elsewhere.

PBS usually streams its "live" shows as well and sometimes the entire series is available to PBS members on or before the first date of a series.  If you join any PBS station for a minimum of $75 a year, this "Passport" feature is made available to you.
