Attend the 45-minute screening of the groundbreaking PBS documentary, “The U.S. and the Holocaust,” directed by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein. HERC was the lead sponsor in Wisconsin when the documentary debuted in September 2022. It tells the story how the American people grappled with one of the greatest humanitarian crises of the twentieth century, and how this struggle tested the ideals of our democracy.
After the screening, we will be joined virtually by Sarah Botstein from Florentine Films for a Q+A session. The “U.S. and the Holocaust” documentary was Sarah’s co-directorial debut. She has also produced some of the most popular and acclaimed documentaries on PBS. Her work with Ken Burns and Lynn Novick includes “Jazz” (2001), “The War” (2007), “Prohibition” (2011), “The Vietnam War” (2017), “College Behind Bars” (2019), and “Hemingway” (2020).
