At the end of WWII, hard hitting plays like “Home of the Brave” and Academy Award winning movies like “Crossfire” and “Gentlemen’s Agreement” shined a spotlight on Anti-Semitism in America.  But that focus softened and by the early 1950’s, the Goldbergs were America’s favorite neighbors featured in that new medium called television. Come be entertained by  Ron Silver and Joanne Treuhaft as they use several film clips to explore this shift.
