Thursday, October 27, 2022 2 Cheshvan 5783

6:00 PM - 7:30 PMKKBE, 90 Hasell Street

Join us for a look at the Ken Burns The U.S. and the Holocaust documentary followed by a conversation with documentary contributor, Dr. Rebecca Erbelding. Excerpts from this acclaimed PBS series explore America’s response to one of the greatest humanitarian crises in history, shedding light on what the U.S. government and American people knew and did as the catastrophe unfolded in Europe. As this event will take place on the anniversary of the Tree of Life shooting, Dr. Erbelding will talk about how this documentary relates to that incident.

Hosted by KKBE in partnership with the Charleston Jewish Federations, the College of Charleston's Zucker/Goldberg Center for Holocaust Studies, and the South Carolina Council on the Holocaust.

Rebecca Erbelding is the author of Rescue Board: The Untold Story of America’s Efforts to Save the Jews of Europe (Doubleday, 2018), which won the National Jewish Book Award for excellence in writing based on archival research. She and her work are featured in the 2022 PBS documentary "The U.S. and the Holocaust," directed by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick, and Sarah Botstein, a film for which she served as a historical advisor. She holds a PhD in American history from George Mason University and has been a historian, curator, and archivist at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum since 2003. She served as the lead historian on the Museum’s special exhibition, Americans and the Holocaust.
