In their own words, veterans both famous (director Mel Brooks, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger) and unknown share their war experiences: how they fought for their nation and people, struggled with anti-Semitism within their ranks, and emerged transformed.
The screening of the film will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director, Lisa Ades, and Frederick G.L. Huetwell Professor of History Deborah Dash Moore.
