“Story in the Public Square”

August 21, 2019: Gavriel Rosenfeld

Students of history are taught to see events through the eyes of people living in the era they are studying. From that perspective, history becomes less predictable, decisions seem less certain, and understanding becomes, in fact, more complete. Gavriel Rosenfeld brings that discipline to the history of “the Fourth Reich,” a fear that has mobilized and motivated Europe and the world since 1945.

Each week, the Pell Center produces episodes of “Story in the Public Square,” a public affairs television series and podcast. The show features interviews with today’s best print, screen, music and other storytellers about their creative processes and how their stories impact public understanding and policy.

Hosted by Jim Ludes and G. Wayne Miller, “Story in the Public Square”  aims to study, celebrate, and tell stories that matter. You can listen to the official podcast and download episodes for free on our Story in the Public Square show page as well as on iTunesSpotifyGoogle PlayGoogle PodcastTuneIn, and Stitcher.
