As news of the horrors of the Holocaust spread beyond Europe to the rest of the world, major publications had to decide how they would cover the murder of European Jews under Hitler’s Final Solution. In Buried by The Times: The Holocaust and America’s Most Important Newspaper, Laurel Leff, veteran journalist and professor of journalism at Northeastern University, asserts that The New York Times consistently and purposefully downplayed the Holocaust, burying the mass murder of Jews in its back pages. Join Professor Leff for a discussion of her research on The Times’ response to the Holocaust and its impact on the greater understanding of the American public.
