The U.S. and the Holocaust

We begin a new segment as part of the upcoming Ken Burns PBS series, The U.S. and the Holocaust, airing September 18 - 20. This morning we speak with Art Center of Battle Creek Executive Director Linda Holderbaum, and Dr. Margaret Lincoln, a United States Holocaust Memorial Museum Teacher Fellow and Lakeview HS Librarian about two new exhibits - The Holocaust Unfolds: Reports from Detroit Jewish News and From Darkness to Light: Mosaics Inspired by Tragedy – a response to the deadly Pittsburgh shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue. Joining the discussion is WGVU Grants Manager Steve Chappell.

Shelley Irwin is the host and producer for The Shelley Irwin Show, a news magazine talk-show format on the local NPR affiliate Monday through Friday. The show, broadcast at 9 a.m., features a wide variety of local and national news makers, plus special features.
