Photography News: The B&H Photography Podcast, a Weekly Conversation on All Aspects of Photography, Continues Its Eclectic Programming With a Compelling Discussion About the Role Industrialist and Leica Camera Manufacturer Ernst Leitz II Played in World War II Era Germany, With Frank Dabba Smith and Jill Enfield

NEW YORK, NY --(Marketwired - February 27, 2016) - B&H Photo Video is proud to present an exciting edition of its B&H Photography Podcast, a weekly conversation about all things photography. With insightful and entertaining guests, we discuss the issues most important to the contemporary photographer.

The oft-quoted line, paraphrased for our headline and notably used in reference to Oskar Schindler and Chiune Sugihara, can also be applied to industrialist and Leica camera manufacturer Ernst Leitz II, who used his influence to help many Jews and other subjugated people avoid persecution, maintain their jobs, or even escape Germany during the 1930s and 1940s. Like any story drawn from a terrible era of oppression, heroes are painted with shades of gray, and humanitarianism can be found in small gestures, but historian Frank Dabba Smith creates a narrative derived from primary source research. Our other guest, photographer Jill Enfield, recounts her family's direct relationship with this chapter of Jewish, German, American, and photographic history. Join us for this engaging conversation.

Guests: Frank Dabba Smith and Jill Enfield

Along with host Allan Weitz, our two guests provide an educational and easy-to-follow exchange that is applicable to any level of photographer.
