Synopsis

GI Jews tells the profound 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 Jews' participation in the fight against Hitler. These brave men and women fought for their nation and their people, 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. They emerged transformed, more powerfully American and more deeply Jewish, determined to continue the fight for equality and tolerance at home.
