The Accomplices

by Bernard Weinraub

April 26 – May 25, 2008

Synopsis

Longtime journalist and first-time playwright Bernard Weinraub details how American government, media, and even American Jewish officials abetted the World War II massacre of European Jews because they feared that too much outcry would lead to anti-Semitism at home. What it exposes is a bracing reminder, as timely now as ever, of silence’s complicity with death.
