Jewish Troops and Jewish Victims: soldiers encounter the Holocaust: Jewish War Veterans - countering Nazi propaganda

Case 1

Jewish organizations communicated through books, articles, and speeches the honorable, even valorous, role that Jewish soldiers have played in all of America's wars to counter both Nazi propaganda but also general American anti-Semetic views of "the cowardly Jew." 

Jewish Troops and Jewish Victims: soldiers encounter the Holocaust

The 23rd Annual Yom HaShoah / Holocaust Memorial Day exhibit "Jewish Troops and Jewish Victims: soldiers encounter the Holocaust" focuses on the experience of Jewish military personnel as the camps - about which the Allied public knew so little - are liberated.  The exhibit, including documentary footage, will be mounted in the lobby of Adams Library through the end of April.
