Reporting on The Times: The New York Times and the Holocaust

 

Year: 2013
Country: USA
Run Time: 18 minutes

Inspired by Laurel Leff's award winning book Buried by The Times, this film explores how The New York Times handled reports of The Holocaust during World War II. It also explores why The Times, a Jewish-owned newspaper, buried more than one thousand articles in its back pages. Was it simply an oversight? Or did the publishers and editors fear an American Antisemitic backlash? Through interviews and testimonies of a Holocaust survivor, historians, journalists, and American citizens who lived through World War II, REPORTING ON THE TIMES encourages audiences to re-evaluate America's place as The Great Liberator. The film also asks viewers to consider the power of the press in creating change.
