American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris joins us to discuss the tragedy unfolding in Ukraine. Harris takes on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claim about the need to “denazify” Ukraine, shares what everyone, especially the Jewish community, needs to know about Babyn Yar, Ukraine’s Holocaust memorial which was partially damaged by Russian forces, and issues a warning that Putin’s tactics are drawn from Hitler’s playbook.
Then, Manya Brachear Pashman sits down with AJC Philadelphia Director Marcia Bronstein to talk about her personal connection to Ukraine and the rallies she has attended in support of the country over the past week.
