Created Equal Film Series presents “GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II”

The film tells the profound and unique story of the 550,000 Jewish men and women who served the United States during World War II in their own words.

From the Virginia Museum of History & Culture:

In partnership with the Weinstein JCC, join us for a film that tells the profound and unique story of the 550,000 Jewish men and women who served the United States during World War II. In their own words, veterans both famous and unknown bring their war experiences to life: how they fought for their nation and their people, struggled with anti-Semitism within their ranks, and emerged transformed. In the end, the story of the Jewish GIs is the story of becoming Americans- the story of immigrants who earned their citizenship by shedding blood, and fought for democracy and tolerance abroad and at home.

This event is free and open to all. RSVP recommended. Film will be shown in the Robins Family Forum at the Virginia Museum of History & Culture.
