TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

November 21, 2017 at 5:30 am

“Proud anti-Semite.” That’s the boast spotted on a bumper sticker of a car driving on Route 110 in Farmingdale, Long Island. A sign of the times? Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and National Director of the Anti-Defamation League joins us to share some sobering statistics. On a February night in 1939, the Nazi-supporting German-American Bund, held a 20,000-strong rally at Madison Square Garden. We revisit the night that occurred at the same time as Adolf Hitler completed work on his sixth concentration camp overseas.

Aired on November 20, 2017.
