PBS (Sun., Nov. 6, 8 p.m. ET)


Fifty years after Nazis openly waged their organized campaign of terror against German and Austrian Jews with the Nov. 9, 1938, destruction of synagogues and stores and the arrest of about 20,000 people, PBS gives us a few documentaries to make us remember. In this week's show, the first of the group, some journalists, witnesses and survivors of that night—including Dr. Ruth Westheimer—give astonishingly vivid portraits from their memories. Well done.
