The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum’s radio special, “Confronting Hatred: 70 Years after the Holocaust,” was broadcast on Minnesota Public Radio’s KNOW 91.1 and on other affiliates around the state on Thursday, April 16.
The hour-long radio special, which aired during this year’s Days of Remembrance, is based on the long-running Voices on Antisemitism podcast series produced by the museum
“Confronting Hatred” brings together a broad range of voices to talk about racism, anti-Semitism and the ways in which hatred can grow. It features personal stories from a former skinhead, an imam and a prosecutor for the Rwandan genocide trials, as well as heavy metal singer David Draiman, filmmaker Errol Morris, and Holocaust survivor and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Elie Wiesel.
The documentary also examines the ways in which the Holocaust continues to inform contemporary discussions about hate speech, propaganda and human rights.
The program can be heard on the museum’s Web site at: ushmm.org/confronting-hatred as well as on iTunes, and at: www.mprnews.org/topic/mpr-news-presents.
