Rod Serling was no stranger to the atrocities of what Hitler’s Nazi party did to Jews during the Holocaust. He fought in WWII, battled anti-semitism in his own home state, and through the power of his pen fought to bring light to this hate in an effort to end racism of every kind. As brilliant as he was, we unfortunately still find racism all around us and Jews are still being attacked more than any other group today. This month we look at two episodes that Rod wrote to shed light on the horrors of the Nazi party, and express his confidence that their ultimate judgement awaited them. These episodes are “Judgement Night” from season 1 and “Death’s Head Revisited” from season 3. These episodes stand as proof that The Twilight Zone is just as relevant today as it was in the 1960’s.
