German Patriots: Jewish Germans During WWI

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Germany entered World War I on August 1, 1914 when the country declared war on Russia. 11 million German soldiers were mobilized, 100,000 of whom were Jewish. A number of these Jewish soldiers were honored for their service with the Iron Cross. In addition, many German Jews supported the war effort at home along with their neighbors. This service and dedication were soon disregarded, but World War I efforts are an essential part of the German Jewish story.

Showcasing artifacts from The Museum of Jewish Heritage’s collection, the program will explore these efforts and experiences with scholars Dr. Michael Geheran, Dr. Jason Crouthamel, and Dr. Tim Grady, moderator Ralph Blumenthal, and the Museum’s Curatorial Research Assistant Rebecca Frank.
