Produktbeschreibung

During the 1930s, Rabbi Roland Gittelsohn was a distinguished scholar and vocal pacifist. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, Rabbi Gittelsohn had a change of heart and volunteered to serve as a chaplain in the US Navy. He was the first rabbi ever deployed with the US Marine Corps, and he eventually found himself in the middle of the battle at Iwo Jima. At the end of the conflict, he gave what is one of the most renowned speeches of the war at the dedication of the 5th Marine Division cemetery, known as "the Gettysburg Address of World War II."

This biography is based on multiple sources, including Gittelsohn's personal papers, and follows his entire life, beginning with the Gittelsohn family's emigration from Russia to the United States. From the growing antiwar movement after World War I, to the training of military chaplains and the anti-Semitism among their ranks, important events of the time further contextualize Gittelsohn's life. Also detailed is Gittelsohn's illustrious postwar career, including his service on President Harry S. Truman's Committee on Civil Rights.
