The Ritchie Boys
The story of German Jews who escaped Nazi Germany only to return as US Army intelligence soldiers. For the first time, the surviving ‘boys’ speak on camera about their rigorous intelligence training, their experience on the frontlines and their unit’s special assignments. In never-seen archival footage, whose quality and colour are dazzling, the film tells of their courage and heroism. Note: Stephan Lewy of NH (Telling their Stories: NH Holocaust Survivors Speak Out) was one of these ‘Ritchie Boys.’ 93 minutes (DVD only)
