Jewish Soldiers & Fighters in WWII
Virtual International Conference
Amidst the bloodshed and destruction of World War II, nearly 1.5 million Jewish men and women made vital contributions to the Allied war effort against Adolf Hitler and the Axis powers. However, despite the large volume of World War II research, books, movies, and other works, the very fact of these 1.5 million “Jewish soldiers” remains virtually unknown.
On 14-15 November 2021, leading experts from universities, archives, libraries and museums will gather on an international (virtual) stage, alongside members of the public, veterans and their families, and Holocaust survivors and their descendants, to explore the experience of the Jewish soldier in WWII. This international virtual conference is presented by the Blavatnik Archive Foundation.
FREE & open to the public. The conference website is https://jewishsoldiersinwwii.org/.
