Dodd, becomes America’s first ambassador to Hitler’s Nazi Germany in 1933, and takes his wife, son and daughter with him to Europe. At first, the family, especially the daughter Martha, is excited and intrigued. But as Hitler’s slaughter of the Jews grows, they realize just how evil he is, but by then Europe is awash in terror and blood.

• 10:30 a.m. Nov. 1, “Call the Midwife: A True Story Of The East End In The 1950s,” by Jennifer Worth. Jennifer Worth came from a sheltered background when she became a midwife in the Docklands in the East End in the 1950s.
