Film screening - The Ritchie Boys

Congregation Kehillath Israel, Thursday, April 24 (1-4pm)

Run out of Germany by the Nazis, a small contingent of German Jewish intellectuals exacted the perfect revenge - returning to Europe as U.S. soldiers to defeat the enemy. Groundbreaking and unforgettable, a handful of German nationals used their language and cultural knowledge to wage psychological warfare against the Nazis and to liberate Europe. Still sharp as octogenarians, The Ritchie Boys - a medley of hilariously unlikely soldiers - vividly recall their treacherous and heroic slog through World War II, from their training at Camp Ritchie, Maryland, to the beaches of Normandy, from dark weeks spent in a German POW camp to D-Day ebullience. Now highly successful artists, businessmen, and professors, The Ritchie Boys laugh at their clumsy fit within the U.S. military, cry at the horrors of war, and marvel at the unorthodox, but effective, forms of subterfuge that helped defeat the Nazis.
