Monday, April 28 at 10 p.m.

The extermination camp of Treblinka was created by the Nazis to eliminate the high captive Jewish population in occupied Poland and beyond.  In a frenzy of mass murder lasting less than two years as many at 900 thousand Jewish men, women and children, including inhabitants of the Warsaw ghetto, were murdered in this tiny camp hidden deep in the woods.  No one liberated Treblinka - to be a survivor you had to fight your way out.  In August 1943 a few hundred slave laborers did so, and today only two witnesses remain: Samuel Willenberg and Kalman Taigman.

Monday, April 28 at 9 p.m.

In the summer of 1931, a young lawyer called Hans Litten put a rising political star, Adolf Hitler, in the witness box of a Berlin Court.  He wanted to expose Hitler's hypocrisy and secret commitment to violence and shatter the Nazi party's political respectability.  Litten wanted to challenge the public as Germany and the rest of Europe seemed to be sleep walking to fascism.  Discover the consequences of Litten's heroism both for himself and for those closest to him.
