HUAC (not HCUAC) was a witch huntng travesty that uncovered nothing but ruined the life of many. Persons of Jewish background suffered disproportionately and the scars of that experience still linger in the families of those persecuted. The committee did not uncover spies or enemy agents but targeted and harrassed individuals who signed petitions and went to meetings. Its goal was not the security of the nation but the stifling of dissent.
