Jewish veterans of honor: 'Regular guy from the Bronx' whose unit liberated a concentration camp
Next up in our series on soldiers honored at Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem, Estelle Mintz remembers her husband Lester. JNF's Wall of Honor pays tribute to the courage and heroism of Jewish soldiers worldwide who have fought in defense of their countries in numbers disproportionately high considering their representation in the general population.
After the war, he went on to become an elementary school teacher, spicing up his fifth-grade history lessons with photos of himself with his buddy, George Washington (taken not during the Revolutionary War, as the kids believed, but at Colonial Williamsburg).
|Each plaque on the Wall of Honor includes the soldier's name and country, rank, and dates of service.|
