Wars force us to make agonizing decisions and do unimaginable things. A Jewish man with a forged Christian identity is forced into the SS.
This is a true story about a Jewish man who had to serve in the SS during World War II. The idea of a Jewish SS officer is preposterous. Yet highly unusual things take place in wars and people must take agonizing steps to protect themselves and loved ones. The story was told to me over a course of two years by a family friend who passed away last year and is known only to a handful of people to this day.
