Discovery Channel and PBS to Air Holocaust documentaries

Two new documentaries – one on U.S. soldiers who liberated concentration camps, and the other on survivors from Britain – will air for Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day). During this day, Israel and those who stand with her remember the six million Jewish lives that were taken during one of the darkest chapters in history:

Alan Moskin served in Patton’s 3rd Army as it liberated the Mauthausen concentration camp. The experience, he said in an unintentional wordplay, was “tattooed right here on my heart, on my soul.”

He didn’t share what he saw — not with his parents or siblings, not his wife and children — until 50 years after he came home. But when he finally spoke up, it was a catharsis that lifted a weight from him.

Moskin is at the center of one of two similarly named documentaries airing next week to commemorate Yom Hashoah, or Holocaust Remembrance Day.

“Liberation Heroes: The Last Eyewitness” will air on May 1 at 9:00 p.m. EST on the Discovery Channel, and PBS will broadcast “The Last Survivors” at 10:00 p.m. EST on April 30.
