"GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II"

Join us for a special preview of "GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II," which tells the profound and unique story of the 550,000 Jewish men and women who served in World War II. Through the eyes of the servicemen and women, the film brings to life the little-known story of Jews in World War II — as active participants in the fight against Hitler, bigotry and intolerance. The documentary features more than 25 original interviews with Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Henry Kissinger, the late Bea Cohen and others that reveal their fight against fascism, as well as their more personal war to liberate loved ones in Europe. After years of struggle, they emerged transformed, more powerfully American and more deeply Jewish, determined to continue the fight for equality and tolerance at home. (Premieres on PBS on 4/11).
