A story from Humans of Judaism appeared on my LinkedIN feed the other day. Here it is. Roddie Edmonds was a Master Sergeant in the United States Army. In late 1944, Edmonds was captured in the Battle of the Bulge and held at a German POW camp. In January 1945, the Nazis ordered all Jewish-American POWs to step forward. Edmonds, the highest-ranking noncommissioned officer at the camp, ordered all 1,000 US soldiers to step forward, regardless of their religion.
Thank God for brave individuals, ready to stand up in the face of discrimination of any kind.
