Boasting narration by John Milius, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of "Apocalypse Now" and featuring Sam Waterston as the voice of Abraham Lincoln, "Jewish Soldiers in Blue & Gray" focuses such events as Ulysses S. Grant's 1862 mandate to expel Jewish residents from Union-controlled land.

"Swimming in Auschwitz" -- Sunday, May 27, at 11 PM
