Mark Oppenheimer

A piercing portrait of the struggles and triumphs of a singular community in the wake of the unspeakable tragedy highlights the hopes, fears, and tensions all Americans must confront on the road to healing. Mark Oppenheimer poignantly shifts the focus away from the criminal and his crime and instead presents the historic, spirited community at the center of this heartbreak. He speaks with residents and nonresidents, Jews and gentiles, survivors and witnesses, teenagers and seniors, activists and historians.
