Milt Feldman's life has been a story of perseverance. As a Jew growing up during the Great Depression, he was raised to be proud of his heritage—and he carried that pride with him into the U.S. Army during World War II. When Nazi forces captured him during the Battle of The Bulge, he refused to deny who he was or where he came from.
This documentary tells Milt's story in an intimate and personal way that evokes his childhood and wartime experience, including his capture by Nazi forces and his long journey to Stalag IV, a German POW camp. It also explores how his family struggled during the Depression and how they coped after losing their home during a hurricane in 1938.
Milt's story is an essential reminder of the hardships faced by many Americans during this period—and it serves as a testament to the strength and resilience of those who persevered through them all. English | HD | 60 minutes. Available from Kanopy Streaming and Alexander Street Press.
