Through riveting firsthand testimony of witnesses and survivors who, as children, endured persecution, violence, and flight as their families tried to escape Hitler, The U.S & The Holocaust delves deeply into the tragic human consequences of public indifference, bureaucratic red tape, and restrictive quota laws in America.

Panelists will include Adam Rovner, Director of the Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Denver; Estelle Nadel, a Holocaust survivor; Pamela Roth, the daughter of Holocaust survivors; Todd Hennessy, co-founder of Colorado Holocaust Educators, and Kristen Blessman, PBS12 General Manager.
