A Review by Marion Werle:  Jews in the Great War is a collection of 37 stories of the World War I experiences of Jews from all over the world. The stories and accompanying photos were initially exhibited at the 34th IAJGS Jewish genealogy conference, held in Salt Lake City in 2014. The book is partly a scrapbook and partly an exhibit catalog. The level of detail varies from story to story, the longest of which is 11 pages of narrative, photos and documents, with the typical entry consisting of a page or two of text accompanied by one or more photos and small family trees.      Read More
