WXDU News, Sports, and Information Sunday 11/22 6:00-8:00 p.m.

First at 6:00 tonight, we join Deutsche Welle's Inside Europe for the stories behind the major European headlines. This week's show examines the responses of EU leaders and football fans to the attacks in Paris, the effect of Russia's assessment of the Metro jet crash on international relations, the renewed fears of European Muslims, Syrian refugees' evolving paths of entry into Europe and the modern relevance of the Dayton peace agreement.

Then at 7:00, BackStory with the American History Guys gets us ready for Turkey Day with a look at the holiday's past, in "American as Pumpkin Pie: A History of Thanksgiving." On this episode, the Guys uncover the true origins of the holiday as they discuss the role of Thanksgiving Day football play, compare the modern Thanksgiving feast with the fare the Pilgrims would have eaten, trace the tradition of granding a turkey a presidential pardon, and more.
