The Last Laugh - From the Holocaust to Rwanda - Clip

Clip | 1m 37s

In this excerpt from the Independent Lens film The Last Laugh, Holocaust survivor Renee Firestone talks about how her late husband missed some terrible things happening in the modern world, like 9/11, and Rwanda, which she visited. In Rwanda, she notes, 1 million Tutsis were murdered in just four months. "And this is after the Holocaust, when we keep saying 'Never again'? So that’s where we are."
