ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Have you ever admired something so much that you dedicated your life to honoring it? For one man, it was an admiration this great - for America and the concept of individual liberty - that inspired one of the largest statues the world had ever seen: the Statue of Liberty. On this episode of Raising the Torch, Diane von Furstenberg introduces us to American University historian Alan Kraut; Barry Moreno, librarian for the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration; and National Park Service Ranger Melissa Magnuson-Cannady. These experts journey us back in time to learn about the Statue’s creation and how its symbolism has evolved from upholding the importance of individual liberty to becoming a modern-day beacon of safe harbor.
