Guilt, Reconciliation, and What We Can Learn From the Past

Oct 12, 2017

On The Point, a conversation between author Jessica Shattuck, whose grandparents were members of the Nazi party, and Rachel Kadish, whose grandparents survived the Holocaust.

What can descendants of perpetrators and victims learn from each other, and from the past? How can the lessons from WWII help us address the nationalism, racism and anti-semitism we see today? 

Rachel Kadish's most recent novel is The Weight of Ink. Jessica Shattuck's most recent novel is The Women in the Castle.
