Air Date: | Edwin Black brings brings an important part of the Holocaust to light: the Farhud (violent dispossession), two days of frightful violence, looting, and murder visited on the Jews of Baghdad and other Iraqi cities on Shauvot of 1941, June 1–2. Based on his book of the same name.
The Holocaust is often perceived as a primarily European phenomenon, and the travails of the Jews of the Middle East and North Africa are often forgotten. Project Witness is helping change that with its program for educators, “The Untold Plight: The Sephardic Communities in the Holocaust.”
Air Date: - Season 4 - Episode 6 | Trial balloons overhead, multimillion-dollar infiltration of our politics, policing stations on US territory, implants across college campuses, strategic land purchases in the heartland, insertion into our phones and computers. A proclaimed goal to dominate the world by 2035.
What’s happening and how soon? Hudson Institute foreign policy fellow Josh Block joins Edwin to pinpoint the threats.
Air Date: | Edwin Black returns to JHU to present “American Eugenics: From Long Island to Auschwitz,” based on his award-winning War Against the Weak. By academic invitation only for the Biotechnology Department’s Bioethics Course, part of the Master of Biotechnology Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Program.
Air Date: | We are on hiatus this week; we’ll be back on February 9 with an exploration of reparations.
Edwin, Carol, and Team Black wish everyone a Happy Tu BiShvat.
While we’re away, please enjoy this encore presentation of S2 E42, “Are There Any Good Wars?”
Air Date: - Season 4 - Episode 5 | Who shall receive—and who shall pay?
What is proper justice for injustice?
For Slavery, Native Americans, Japanese Americans, Eugenics Victims, and many others. Famed constitutional and civil rights attorneys Nathan Lewin and Alan Dershowitz plus other voices join Edwin to begin untangling one of the thorniest and most crying issues of our day.
Air Date: - Season 4 - Episode 4 | For International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we honor those who fought back—partisans, ghetto fighters, camp saboteurs, boycotters, protestors, those in suits on streets, those with rifles in the woods. Jews did fight back. Holocaust scholars Sam Edelman and Carol Edelman join Edwin, as does Abe Foxman, who survived the Holocaust among the “Hidden Children.”
Air Date: - Season 4 - Episode 2 | Edwin takes on some unanswered—and still burning—questions. Almost every episode, we run out of time before we run out of questions. We save them, and these episodes give us a chance to address topics such as history, the state of journalism, WWIII, energy, current affairs, and more. Edwin also accepts questions live via the Zoom Q&A. Join us for another no-holds-barred, nothing-off-the-table session.
Carly Gammill of StandWithUs joins Edwin to spotlight a case of antisemitism at George Washington University and SWU's response.
Air Date: - Season 4 - Episode 1 | Pro-Palestinian activists, antisemitic politicians and celebrities, and other racist elements are coalescing into a diverse anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement. Jewish locations are mapped and publicized, Berkeley Law School has nine “no-go” zones for pro-Israel speakers, synagogues are vandalized, and Jews are threatened and assaulted every day, coast to coast. The term “Zionist” is often a trigger for exclusion and retaliation. Is a new Kishinev, Farhud, or Kristallnacht coming to America? Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander and eminent civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin join Edwin again for Part II of the discussion that nobody wants to have.
Air Date: |
Edwin, Carol, and Team Black wish everyone health, prosperity, and joy for the coming year.
Please join us on December 29th as we welcome the Vintage Boys back for another informative, illuminating—and celebratory—exploration of our fragmented world, our turbulent history, our very very tense present, and our evolving and uncertain future.
