Welcome to the final piece in our special 3-part series called Spectacle or Spectacular – a collection of stories about people who dare greatly, hopeful of a certain outcome, with no guarantees. They draw critics and supporters alike. But what made them dare their actions – what caused them to step out so boldly? The final installation of this 3 part series is about the spectacle of WWII and the undisputed spectacular actions of the allied forces, the soldiers, the prisoners in the concentration camps, those who defied death – the rescued and the escaped; and helpers and the doers… and those who lost their lives in the process.
Tune in as we listen to excerpts from Nobel Peace Prize winner, author, and Holocaust survivor, Elie Wiesel, Winston Churchill, and Simon Wiesenthal – before diving into a full-length conversation with Holocaust survivor, Eva Olsson.
