Synopsis

Danny Kaye made his television acting debut in this highly acclaimed film dramatizing the controversial street demonstrations attempted by Nazis in the mainly-Jewish community of Skokie, Illinois, in late 1977, and the effects of the prospective march on many World War II concentration camp survivors who live there. The film was nominated for an Emmy as Outstanding Drama Special, with nominations also going to director Herbert Wise and writer Ernest Kinoy. (Wise won the Directors Guild of America Award; Kinoy won the Writers Guild of America Award.) It was the last TV acting appearance for the legendary Lee Strasberg, who died before the film aired.
