Join us for a Pre-Memorial Day discussion of Sons and Soldiers: The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned with the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler by Bruce Henderson. Our discussion of Sons and Soldiers will feature a special guest speaker, Irene Wittig, whose uncle was a Ritchie Boy in the US Army.

About the book

Bestselling author Bruce Henderson captures the stories of young Jewish boys who escaped Nazi-occupied Europe and resettled in America. After the United States entered the war, they returned to fight for their adopted homeland and for the families they had left behind. These young men - known as the Ritchie Boys, after the Maryland camp where they trained - were one of the US Army's greatest secret weapons.
