The U.S. and the Holocaust : a history to be reckoned with / a production of Florentine Films and WETA Washington, DC ; produced by Sarah Botstein, Lynn Novick, Ken Burns & Mike Welt ; directed by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick & Sarah Botstein ; telescript by Geoffrey C. Ward.
This film "examines America's response to one of the greatest humanitarian crises of the twentieth century. Americans consider themselves a 'nation of immigrants,' but as the catastrophe of the Holocaust unfolded in Europe, the United States proved unwilling to open its doors to more than a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of desperate people seeking refuge. Through riveting firsthand testimony of witnesses and survivors who as children endured persecution, violence and flight as their families tried to escape Hitler, this series delves deeply into the tragic human consequences of public indifference, bureaucratic red tape and restrictive quota laws in America. Did the nation fail to live up to its ideals? This is a history to be reckoned with." --container.
