For International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we honor those who fought back—partisans, ghetto fighters, camp saboteurs, boycotters, protestors, those in suits on streets, those with rifles in the woods. Jews did fight back. Holocaust scholars Sam Edelman and Carol Edelman join Edwin, as does Abe Foxman, who survived the Holocaust among the “Hidden Children.”

Antisemitism, suppression of free speech, racism, and the final frontier of economic exploitation and privilege. Does it all need to change? Ethics writer Faye Lincoln and former SPME Executive Director Samuel Edelman join Edwin to grade academia and issue remedial ideas.

Twenty years ago this week, IBM and the Holocaust exposed with crystal clarity—backed up with a literal tower of physical documentation—that IBM knowingly organized all six phases of the Holocaust: identification, exclusion, confiscation, ghettoization, deportation, and even extermination. All of this was done under the micromanagement of its celebrated CEO, Thomas Watson, Sr., operating from his New York office on Madison Avenue, and later through European subsidiaries. IBM has never denied a word of the book. Now University of Miami Holocaust scholar Samuel Edelman and JNS Jerusalem bureau chief Alex Traiman join Edwin as he shares the inside story behind the global revelation.
