Our struggle for freedom from ethnic, religious, and racial prejudice has been underscored in recent weeks by national and world events. Not the least of these events comes out of the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk in which Jews were told to “register” with the pro-Russian militants who have taken over a government office in an attempt to make Ukraine part of Russia. Earlier this month, a gunman screaming “Heil Hitler” shot and killed three victims at a Jewish community center in Overland Park, Kansas. Are these isolated events or further indication of widespread bigotry? Brien will talk with Holocaust Education Resource Council Director, Barbara Goldstein about the local efforts of this organization to inform and educate our community.
Also, Tim Center joins us to discuss the role we play in helping those less fortunate and we have Wes Morgan in the Business spotlight.
