The atrocities committed against Jews before and during World War II has been well-documented throughout the decades.  It has been presented time and again in so many books, movies and documentaries.  Now this May, PBS is bringing to DVD a new, rarely told story of Jews in WWII in the new documentary GI JewJewish Americans in World War II.

This 90-minute doc is currently scheduled to be released on DVD May 8.  It tells the story of the battles that Jewish Americans fought externally and internally as part of America’s military.  Those internal battles included anti-Semitism from their own fellow servicemen.

This story of Jewish immigrants becoming American all while working to overcome so many obstacles will retail for MSRP of $24.99, but can be pre-ordered now at a reduced price of $19.99 via PBS’ online store.  More information on this and other programs from PBS is available online now at:
