Watching third and final episode of #USandTheHolocaustPBS . It points out that many US newspapers downplayed the Holocaust. A Black paper, the Pittsburgh Courier, was a notable exception.

My conversation with @KenBurns @LynnNovick @sbotstein about storytelling, fascism and civic duty felt like both a graduate course in history and filmmaking and a chat with old friends. So much to learn from this interview. (Gift link below has no paywall.)

This @KenBurns documentary "The U.S. and the Holocaust" is so chilling in the way we see all the echoes today and seem to be making such similar mistakes.
