This documentary reveals the profound and remarkable story of the 550,000 Jewish Americans who served in World War II. 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 with many facing anti-Semitism in the ranks, they emerged transformed, more powerfully American and more deeply Jewish, determined to continue the fight for equality and tolerance at home. Interviewees include Henry Kissinger, Carl Reiner, and Mel Brooks.
Topics: Holocaust, WWII, Anti-Semitism
