- Series Description
Premiered October 1988 As television's longest-running, most-watched history series, American Experience brings to life the incredible characters and epic stories that helped form this nation. Now in its eighteenth season, the series has produced over 180 programs and garnered every major broadcast award. Series release date: 10/1988
- Program Description
This program paints a troubling picture of the United States during a period beset by anti-Semitism and a government that, due to complex social and political factors, not only delayed action but suppressed information and blocked efforts that could have resulted in the rescue of thousands of people. An examination of these factors is framed by the moving story of Kurt Klein, a German Jew who emigrated to America and struggled against a wall of bureaucracy at the State Department to free his parents from Europe.
