Please join Virginia Holocaust Museum, in partnership with Virginia Public Media, for a film screening and panel discussion for “The U.S. and the Holocaust,” a new three-part documentary directed and produced by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein. It explores America’s response to one of the greatest humanitarian crises in history. THE U.S. AND THE HOLOCAUST features a fascinating array of historical figures that includes Franklin D. Roosevelt, Charles Lindbergh, Dorothy Thompson, Rabbi Stephen Wise, and Henry Ford, as well as Anne Frank and her family, who applied for but failed to obtain visas to the U.S. before they went into hiding. This unexpected aspect of the Franks’ story underscores an American connection to the Holocaust that will be new to many viewers.

There will be a panel discussion following the film.

Please RSVP by November 8, 2022 to Brett Schrader at 804-257-5400 xt. 243 or bschrader@vaholocaust.org.
