Ours to Fight For: American Jews in the Second World War

Courtesy of the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust,

Ours to Fight For: American Jews in the Second World War was created and is circulated by the Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust.

Celebrate the achievements of the Jewish men and women who served America during World War II, both on and off the battlefield. Learn what the war meant to the Jews of the “Greatest Generation,” a story told in their own words, through their own objects, letters, and photographs.

Major funding for this exhibition has been generously provided by Jack and Susan Rudin and Family in memory of Lewis Rudin; by Irving Schneider in memory of his friend, Lewis Rudin; and by Irving and June Paler in memory of June’s father, Duncan Robertson, who fought for justice in both World Wars.

Funding for the installation of Ours to Fight For at the JMM is made possible by the Hoffberger Family Exhibition Endowment, the Stanford Z. & Cory Rothschild Exhibition Endowment, and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Exhibition Endowment.

Special thanks to the veterans and their families who have shared their photos and objects with us.
