Also Founding Historian of NY’s Museum of Jewish Heritage and today Special Events Curator for the Cinema Arts Centre, Huntington, Dr. Newborn is doing a series of similar dramatic programs across the country and in Israel this year commemorating the 70th Anniversary of the White Rose students, who staged the only public protest ever staged by Germans against Nazism. His program includes music, 78 powerful images and suspenseful storytelling about these former Hitler Youth leaders who transformed uniquely to become the greatest heroes of the German anti-Nazi resistance, and icons for freedom around the world today. In 1995 Dr. Newborn broke a decades long barrier at the United Nations by the Arab block to give the first program on the Holocaust ever held there.
