60 Minutes ran a rerun of their episode first shown last May 9th about The Ritchie Boys—a group of German-Jews who came to the United States when Hitler came to power in Germany in the 1930s. It tells the story of how they fought, interpreted, spied and helped win World War ll.

 

It may be seen  at: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/world-war-ii-jews-escape-nazi-germany-hitler-60-minutes-2021-09-05/

 

This is accessible in the United States, and parts of Canada. I am not certain if it is available outside that part of North America.

Excellent program.  An incredibly brave, dedicated, intelligent group of men.  Glad they are being given some recognition.

There was a similar group of escaped Jews in the British Army that has been written about by Leah Garrett titled. "X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II."
