Book jacket cover for the 1952 report the radio program was based on.

This episode is from the WNYC archives. It may contain language which is no longer politically or socially appropriate.

Based on "The Trouble Makers: An Anti-Defamation League Report" by Benjamin R. Epstein and Arnold Forster.

Several stories of discrimination based on religion and race: a couple receives a dead rat from their neighbors, a veteran is denied a home because he is Jewish, a group of people vandalize a home because the inhabitants are not white, and other similar stories.
