    I was blessed to listen on to EXILE AND RETURN: A GOOD WIDOW
    Dr. Laurie Manhardt discusses the life and times of the Old Testament figure of Judith. (30 minutes) and want to watch it again! My son is taking a course on Genocide and I`d like to hear this program again particularly about the heroes from WWII who saved many Jews – two different Irene`s if I remember correctly. Can you tell me when it will be on again or how might I be able to share the episode with my son`s Grade 12 teacher. Thank you!
