Remember when Buffalo native and CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer was spotted with a film crew at the North Park Theatre and watching soccer at Mes Que on Hertel Avenue over the summer? You may see some of those scenes on CNN! Wolf will be tracing his family’s roots across the globe as part of a special series for the network. His journey, which takes him from the extermination camps where his paternal grandparents were killed during the Holocaust, all the way back to his hometown, will air on Wednesday, October 15th during The Situation Room at 5pm.
