GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II tells the story of the 550,000 Jewish American men and women who fought in World War II. In their own words, veterans both famous (director Mel Brooks, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger) and unknown share their war experiences: how they fought for their nation and people, struggled with anti-Semitism within their ranks, and emerged transformed.

The screening of the film will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director, Lisa Ades, and Frederick G.L. Huetwell Professor of History Deborah Dash Moore.
