This program will be streamed via YouTube as well (1 way feed listen only) What if you uncovered a Nazi paper trail that revealed your father a man very different from the quiet, introspective Dad you knew…or thought you knew? Like Laytner’s father, every Holocaust survivor has an amazing story. Yet if the stories sound too amazing, they risk being dismissed as exaggerations…or worse. At a time when the Holocaust itself is increasingly being questioned, how do we show the truth to younger, skeptical generations further and further removed from the war? Laytner lets the Nazis do it. Digging up damning Nazi documents and chasing after hidden diamonds, author Mel Laytner melds the intimacy of personal memoir with the rigors of investigative journalism to write a Holocaust book for the next generation.
