Seven decades after fighting Nazis in Italy, the Jewish Brigade has finally been recognized.
Italy awarded the Jewish Brigade the Gold Medal for Military Valor, it’s highest honor.
Seventy-three years after the British Army’s Jewish Brigade fought against the Nazis in Italy, the IDF’s 7th Armored Brigade was decorated by the Italian government on their behalf.
Thank you Italy for the honor, and thank you to the fighters of the Jewish Brigade for your service.
