After more than 40 years interviewing some of the world’s most influential and powerful people, Wolf Blitzer still gets one question more than any other:
“Is that your real name?”
The answer reveals a personal history rich in tradition.
Join Wolf Blitzer, CNN’s Lead Political Anchor and anchor of Wolf and The Situation Room, as he discusses his heritage and unique experience exploring his past in CNN’s short documentary series, Roots.
In his episode of Roots, Blitzer reflects on his lineage, heritage and childhood growing up in Buffalo, New York and documents a visit to Israel, including his moving experience to Jerusalem’s Yad Vesham. Blitzer also recounts his family history during the Holocaust.
Following the screening, a Q&A session will take place with Blitzer and CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker.
