Among the Righteous chronicles Satloffís eight-year and four-continent journey to uncover situations that could change the way Arabs view Jews, themselves, and their own history.Over the course of his journey, Satloff not only found the Arab heroes for whom he was searching, but he also made surprising discoveries about what really happened to the half-million Jews of the Arab lands of North Africa under Nazi, Vichy and Fascist rule. Produced by MacNeil/Lehrer Productions, Among the Righteous is one of several Holocaust related programs PBS will air during the week of the Days of Remembrance, our nationís annual commemoration of the Holocaust.
