The soundtrack for THE U.S. AND THE HOLOCAUST, a 3-part series by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick & Sarah Botstein premiering on PBS.

THE U.S. AND THE HOLOCAUST is a three-part, six-hour series directed by Ken Burns, Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein, that examines America's response to one of the greatest humanitarian crises of the twentieth century. Americans consider themselves a 'nation of immigrants,' but as the catastrophe of the Holocaust unfolded in Europe, the United States proved unwilling to open its doors to more than a fraction of the hundreds of thousands of desperate people seeking refuge. Through riveting firsthand testimony of witnesses and survivors who as children endured persecution, violence and flight as their families tried to escape Hitler, this series delves deeply into the tragic human consequences of public indifference, bureaucratic red tape and restrictive quota laws in America. Did the nation fail to live up to its ideals? This is a history to be reckoned with.

Produced by the Grammy-award winning musician Johnny Gandelsman, the soundtrack includes original music created for the film by Kinan Azmeh, Shanir Blumenkranz, Dan Brantigan, Mathias Kunzli, Dana Lyn, Jason Moran, Dave Nelson, Michael Nicholas, Gyan Riley, Kyle Sanna and Carmen Staaf; in addition it features music by Joseph Achron, Johann Sebastian Bach, Ernest Bloch, Osvaldo Golijov, Carla Kihlstedt, Vartaped Komitas and Maurice Ravel.
