Cinema Judaica: The War Years, 1939-1949

USS KIDD Veterans Museum and the Louisiana Veterans Museum Foundation are pleased to bring to Baton Rouge the traveling exhibit “Cinema Judaica: The War Years, 1939-1949.” Developed by the Dr. Bernard Heller Museum at Hebrew Union College, the exhibit opened on January 25 and will be on display through March 31, 2022.

Motion pictures have been a part of our popular culture for over one hundred years. They are a source of entertainment, education, and enlightenment for all, even while deployed in the military. Using iconic Hollywood film posters, “Cinema Judaica” illustrates how the motion picture industry countered America’s isolationism, advocated going to war against the Nazis, and influenced post-war perceptions of the Jewish people.
