Special Political Program

Fake News: Is the Press Really an Enemy of the People?
Sunday, March 8, 2pm-4pm
Featuring Marvin Kalb, award-winning American journalist, and author of Enemy of the People

Twentieth-century dictators—notably, Stalin, Hitler, and Mao—had all denounced their critics, especially the press, as “enemies of the people.” Their goal was to delegitimize the work of the press as “fake news” and create confusion in the public mind about what’s real and what isn’t; what can be trusted and what can’t be. Mr. Kalb’s book is a serious indictment of this administration’s efforts to delegitimize the American press—and put the future of our democracy in question. A book sale and signing will follow the presentation.

Fee: $18

After a short memorial service, Jordyn Barry, Pozez JCC Jewish Innovation Director, will give an introduction to this powerful movie.

“Nazi propaganda minister Josef Goebbels infamously declared Berlin “free of Jews" in 1943, 1,700 Jewish Berliners managed to survive in the Nazi capital. This gripping docudrama traces the true stories of four young people who learned to hide in plain sight. A testament to the resourcefulness, willpower, and sheer chance needed to survive against incredible odds.” – Amazon.com website
