The talk-back entitled "Fake News and How Do We Respond" will be moderated by Joni Blinderman, associate director of the prestigious Covenant Foundation, and will feature a diverse group of panelists and fact checkers, including the Forward's opinion editor Batya Ungar. The talk-back will take place immediately following the Thu, September 20th at 8:00pm performance.
"As the daughter of a holocaust survivor born in Germany, raised in Israel and now living here in NYC, my life and identity have been inseparable from this defining moment in history," shares Ronit Muszkatblit, Director of Arts & Culture at the 14th Street Y. "Nothing is simple, nothing is one dimensional and the lasting markers of the past need to be examined and redefined constantly to become part of our story. By infusing the 14th Street Y building and community with diverse artistic and cultural perspectives we hope to expand and deepen the conversation and create a brave space for our expression."
Join Barry on an unbelievable, around-the-world adventure as he tracks down Holocaust deniers from the heartland to Helsinki, meets professors and presidents, and dodges a brother in Hungary and a boyfriend back home on a journey to discover the shocking truth.
