Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust

Apr 10, 2015

This week WCQS brings you a special Holocaust Remembrance Week program Confronting Hatred: 70 Years After the Holocaust. This documentary examines the ways in which the Holocaust continues to inform contemporary discussions about hate speech, propaganda, and human rights. Explore stories from people confronting hatred in their lives, their communities, and sometimes in their own hearts.

This special, narrated by Morgan Freeman, brings together a broad range of voices to talk about racism, antisemitism, and the ways in which hatred can grow. Hear from a former skinhead, an imam, a prosecutor for the Rwandan genocide trials, and 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 airs April 11 at 3 pm and April 12 at 6 pm.
