Study war no more
Here is a book by my friend, World War II veteran and long-time peace activist Jay Wenk: Study War No More: A Jewish Kid from Brooklyn Fights the Nazis, reviewed by The Daily Freeman of Kingston, New York.
Live televised images of a plane striking 2 World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, triggered fear, anger and horror in millions of Americans and others worldwide. Closer to home, the horrific site kicked long-forgotten memories to the forefront and launched a new direction in life for Woodstock author Jay Wenk, whose book, Study War No More: A Jewish Kid from Brooklyn Fights the Nazis, is in local bookstores now.
“In a flash, watching that building come down brought me right back to my war,” Wenk said in a recent interview. It was clear Wenk, 84, was talking about World War II.
