      EVENT DETAILS
      Park University Year of Engagement Documentary Series -- “G.I. Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II”

      During the 2018-19 academic year, Park University and the National Archives at Kansas City are partnering to commemorate the University’s Year of Engagement, a year of conversation and action on its Kansas City area campuses and in the community. The Year of Engagement Documentary Series will include films that reflect Park’s core values (accountability, civility and respect, excellence, global citizenship, inclusivity and integrity) and inspire community engagement.

      “G.I. Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II” — The film tells the profound and unique story of the 550,000 Jewish men and women who served in WWII. The film brings to life their little-known story as active participants in the fight against Hitler, bigotry and intolerance. Like all Americans, they fought against fascism, but they also waged a more personal fight to save their brethren in Europe. Held in conjunction with Jewish American Heritage Month.
