Jewish Aviators in World War II: Personal Narratives of American Men and Women
Sponsored by Elaine & Arnie Tinter in memory of Milton Gordon
In-Kind Sponsor: Wings Over the Rockies


You’ll love it if:  You love gripping WWII narratives and want to know about the role Jewish women and men played in the air.

More than 150,000 American Jews served in the air war during World War II. Despite acts of heroism and commendations, they were subject to bigotry and scorn by their fellow servicemen and by a large percentage of Americans in general. Based on interviews with more than 100 Jewish air veterans, this oral history features the recollections of pilots, crew members and support personnel in all theaters of combat and all branches of the service, including American Jewish women of the Women Airforce Service Pilots.

Bruce H. Wolk is a Denver based writer who has a passion for uniquely American stories, and what we all have in common as Americans. “Jewish Aviators in WWII,” the second book Bruce has published under his own name, is based on more than 100 first person interviews. He is currently at work on a nonfiction book based on the 45 year friendship between an African American and a white basketball player and a novel based on interviews with the WWII Jewish aviators.
