The Center for Jewish Studies is pleased to co-sponsor this event, which is hosted by the William and Ida Friday Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Jewish American Soldiers: Stories from WWII is about Jewish WWII veterans, who tell their personal narrative. The war transformed American Jews in many ways. Deborah Dash Moore, author of GI Jews, said, “it was the formative experience for young Jewish men and since then, there hasn’t been any such formative experience that cuts across class, that cuts across region, that cuts across religious belief.” The veterans were fighting a battle on three fronts: against the American enemies, against fascism and the Nazis, and a personal battle against Anti-Semitism.

Additional information on the film can be found online. Please note there is a $10 fee for this event.
