Podcast with Author Ray Kessler

Author Ray Kessler explores the history of German Jewish war veterans, and how the tragic destinies of real-life soldiers and officers have influenced his novel “A Face in the Night” in this podcast. We will also hear about a new documentary called “Stabbed in the Back” – a remarkable film that presents for the first time the story of the 500,000 Jewish soldiers who served in the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary) armies during The Great War between 1914-1918, only to be persecuted a mere two decades later during the Holocaust. One of our panelists, Mike Rugel, was interviewed for the film, and he will tell us more about it later.
