WATCH: Dustin Hoffman Breaks Down And Says “I’m A Jew”


On the Season 3 finale of Finding Your Roots on PBS, Hollywood actor Dustin Hoffman learns that his great-grandmother “Libba”‘ survived in a Russian concentration camp for five years after both her husband and son were killed. He then discovers that “she fought against almost unimaginable obstacles to enter the country in 1930 at age 62 after losing her left arm, suffering from poor vision and being described as “senile.””

Here’s the clip from the show when he learns this.

Note his reaction – his raw reaction shows just watch a proud Jew he really is.
