German-Jewish Refugees Fight in World War II

Millions of men and women were members of the Allied armies during World War II. Each soldier or sailor had his or her own reasons for participating in the war effort. But, for a small group from America and England, this fight was personal. Their stories are compiled in a new book by a former Chicagoan called The Enemy I Knew: German Jews in the Allied Military in World War II. Steven Karras will be showing his documentary film and talking about the book tomorrow evening at the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie. And on Friday, he'll be reading from and signing copies of The Enemy I Knew at the Bookstall in Winnetka.
