The Round Number
Anyone who has ever been taught about the Holocaust has learned that six million Jews were killed under Nazi rule. In his signature personal style, David Fisher’s first- person historical investigation takes him as a second generation of Holocaust survivors, on a 12-year journey, far beyond statistics through history and politics that still resonate to the present day, when Fisher is challenged for asking deeply unsettling questions about an untouched icon. The Round Number explores why and how the number six million was written into the canon, and what its meaning can teach us about the Holocaust.
