Catherine “Kitty” Genovese, died in the early hours of the morning of 13 March 1964 in the rear hallway of her apartment block, from stab wounds inflicted by a man whom she had never met and for no other reason that he had been intent “on killing a woman” that night.
This is the story that devastated a family, shocked a neighbourhood and a city and sent shockwaves around the world. 50 years on the effects are still felt strongly because the events of that night changed America.
This is the story of Kitty Genovese, the Bystander Effect and the creation of the 911 emergency call.
