Ep. 397: Uncovering a tale of complicity and justice, sonic studies, and a little red dress for International Holocaust Remembrance Day

This week on Unorthodox, we’re devoting the episode to stories of remembrance.

We share a teaser from Covering Their Tracks, a new Tablet Studios series that tells the story of the French National Railway’s complicity with the Nazis during WWII, and a decadeslong pursuit of justice. We sat down with host and documentarian Matthew Slutsky to discuss the show.

Our gentile of the week is Kathryn Huether, a professor of musicology at Vanderbilt who studies sonic representations of the Holocaust.

Plus, we share another installment of Beautifully Jewish, our series dedicated to celebrating the objects that enrich our Jewish lives. This time, Stephanie and Tanya travel to the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center to see a very special dress with a very special story behind it. This segment was created with the support of Lion Brand Yarns.
