On Jan. 27, in partnership with Holocaust Center for Humanity, Seattle, the Museum hosts a free screening of the documentary, “GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II.” The 6:30 p.m. screening is free of charge and presented in commemoration of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. The film will be followed by remarks from U.S. Army Chaplain (Capt.) Rabbi Michael Harari, Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II tells the profound and unique story of the 550,000 Jewish men and women who served in World War II. Through the eyes of the servicemen and women, the film brings to life the little-known story of Jews in World War II as active participants in the fight against Hitler, bigotry, and intolerance.
