The Leap of Faith Jan 22nd, 2021

Listen back here

On the programme tonight, both our guests in their eighties, share insight and wisdom from their early lives that resonates today. We are joined by Sister Helen Préjean and Holocaust survivor Tomi Reichental.

In the last weeks of his presidency, Joe Biden’s predecessor, Donald Trump, and his Attorney General William Barr approved the executions of a record 17 people on Death Row. Sister Helen Préjean has, for decades, been a leading American advocate for the abolition of the death penalty tonight, she shares her views. Tomi Reichental, will next Monday address the European Commission by a remote link for an hour – the only survivor asked to do so. He talks in advance of International Holocaust Memorial day on why we must never forget.
