Chased out of Germany by the Nazis, a small group of German Jewish intellectuals exacted the perfect revenge – returning to Europe as U.S. soldiers to defeat the enemy. These German nationals used their language and cultural knowledge to wage psychological warfare against the Nazis and help liberate Europe. Still sharp as octogenarians, this medley of unlikely soldiers vividly recall their treacherous and heroic years during World War II in the documentary film, The Ritchie Boys.
A film screening of The Ritchie Boys takes place at Congregation Kehillath Israel (384 Harvard Street) in Brookline on Thursday, April 24 from 1-4pm.
The event is part of the JCC Without Walls program, a collaboration of Congregation Kehillath Israel, the Jewish Community Centers of Greater Boston, Temple Ohabei Shalom and Young Israel of Brookline to serve the needs of senior adults, with funding by Combined Jewish Philanthropies. Cost is $5. For reservations, contact 617-558-6443 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
