NOTE: This is a special 3-hour meeting from 1:00-4:00 to accommodate the film and our speaker.
GI JEWS: Jewish Americans in World War II tells the profound and unique story of the 550,000 Jewish men and women who served in World War II. Through the eyes of the servicemen and women, the film brings to life the little-known story of Jews in World War II – as active participants in the fight against Hitler, bigotry and intolerance.
These brave men and women fought for their nation and their people, for America and for Jews worldwide. Like all Americans, they fought against fascism, but they also waged a more personal fight—to save their brethren in Europe. After years of struggle, they emerged transformed, more powerfully American and more deeply Jewish, determined to continue the fight for equality and tolerance at home.
Mike Rugel, program coordinator of the National Museum of American Jewish Military History in Washington, D.C., will join us to discuss the role of Jewish veterans in WWII.
