Berenbaum regrets the error.


Mariusz T. Wesolowski, M.A. wrote to Michael Berenbaum Ph.D., who was one of the historical consultants to the NBC mini-series “Uprising”.  He quoted the offensive comparison, pointed out the problems, and requested an explanation.


Dr. Berenbaum's response was received Nov 3, the eve of the premiere.  He said:


I think you make an important case.  I will write the people who developed the website and suggest some corrections. The statement as made is not precise. Much to my chagrin you are correct. I should have written with greater precision.


Michael Berenbaum
