Memory Of A Moment
In this MacNeil Lehrer Newshour segment, two men whose lives touched forty years ago are reunited on the anniversary of the liberation of Buchenwald. Robert Waisman, who had been imprisoned in the German concentration camp, and Leon Bass, a black American who participated in the liberation of the camp, recall their experiences. As a black soldier in the segregated army, Bass, now a history teacher comments: "Human suffering is universal. Your pain is my pain." (JHS/MS+). B/W & color. (10 min.)
