Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announces U.S. presidential bid; Holocaust survivor Josef Lewkowicz tells his story in a new memoir; and cleaning up the Seine River in Paris.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made headlines for his action on anti-abortion bills, book banning and a high-profile feud with Disney. Now, he’s announced his U.S. presidential bid. We talk to a journalist and a Republican strategist about his campaign and what it means in the race against Donald Trump.
Then, Josef Lewkowicz survived several camps during the Holocaust. Now 96, he’s telling his story in a new memoir, The Survivor: How I Survived Six Concentration Camps and Became a Nazi Hunter.
Also, the Seine in Paris may be an iconic landmark, but it’s also polluted with pathogens from sewage waste. But, with the 2024 Summer Olympics coming up — and Paris hosting — there are plans to clean the river and make it safe for swimming. We hear from one scientist who’s part of the clean-up process and a freshwater ecosystems researcher about Canada’s attempts to clean its own waterways.
