(US) USHMM Webinar: The New Americans: Immigrants Who Served Wednesday May 27 9:30 AM ET #announcements

Jan Meisels Allen


Join the Museum and an expert from the United States Military Academy at West Point to learn about Jewish immigrants who risked their lives to fight in World War II.


When Jewish refugees fled the German Reich and immigrated to the United States, they offered unique skill sets to the military. These men and women understood the German language, culture, and psychology and were personally motivated to defeat the Nazis.
