On June 10, 2009, an 88-year-old avowed white supremacist - James von Brunn - entered the National Holocaust Museum and opened fire, killing security guard Stephen Johns.
In the wake of the tragedy, Rabbi Tamara Miller, the GW Hospital's director of spiritual care, wrote a piece in the Washington Post's "On Faith" forum about the ordeal (she counseled Johns' family as doctors tried to save his life), her visceral reaction as a Jew and the unique atmosphere in the hospital on the fateful day. Five months later, she was fired.
The hospital cited potential HIPAA violations and failure to adhere to protocol as reasons for Miller's dismissal. The Rabbi says she communicated nothing beyond what the media had reported and her descriptions of the events that transpired were vague and intended to convey a broader message.
Coming up on News in Depth, Rabbi Tamara Miller speaks out on the controversy in her first radio interview.
