Dr. Jud Newborn (www.judnewborn.com) served as the Founding Historian and co-creator of New York’s Museum of Jewish Heritage — A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. A compelling multimedia storyteller and lecturer, he has presented his programs coast-to-coast at the United Nations and from Canada to Cape Town. He is co-author of the now classic book Sophie Scholl and the White Rose, recently updated in a special 80th Anniversary Edition (1943-2023), and has written for The New York Times, Jerusalem Post, and Smithsonian Magazine, among other publications. Dr. Newborn was awarded his Ph.D. with Distinction by the University of Chicago following three years of adventurous fieldwork in Europe as a Fulbright and Woodrow Wilson National Fellow, including hunting down former SS officers and working undercover for Poland’s “Solidarity” freedom movement during communist martial law. He was honored in 2018 with the Anne Frank Center’s prestigious “Spirit of Anne Frank Human Writes Award.” Today, he is the Emmy Award-winning Producer of Celebrity Guest Programs for Long Island, NY’s Cinema Arts Centre, bringing in Nobel Laureates, Kennedy Center Honorees, and Academy Award, Tony, Emmy, Grammy and Pulitzer Prize winners to interview before live audiences.
