7:00 PM – GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II
(2017, documentary, English, 84min)
550,000 Jewish American men and women served in WWII. Veterans, both famous (from Mel Brooks to Henry Kissinger) and unknown, bring their war experiences to life: how they fought for their nation, their people, struggled with anti-Semitism within their ranks, and emerged transformed, more powerfully American and more deeply Jewish.
Director: Lisa Ades
