Stories about people who accidentally bump into unsettling facts of history in settings meant to teach them history. What they end up learning is very different from what they’re supposed to.
A bunch of kids who aren’t exactly sure who Jews are get accused of anti-Semitism. It becomes a national scandal, and only one man can make it right. He’s rich. He’s in Hollywood. And he’s a Jew. That’s this week on This American Life.
This American Life is heard every Friday night at 7:00 pm; repeating every Saturday morning at 9:00 am on KRCB-FM Radio 91 / Streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / On-demand with the FREE KRCB App @ iTunes App Store & Google Play!
