Deborah Dash Moore, history scholar and professor of history at the University of Michigan, will speak tonight at 8 in Room 317 of the Student Center.

Moore’s speech is titled “G.I. Jews: How World War II Changed a Generation,” after one of her nine books, and focuses on the struggles Jewish-American soldiers faced during World War II.

According to a press release, Moore’s speech is part of the Jewish Studies’ Speakers’ Series, which is sponsored by Hillel of Kent and Kent State University’s Jewish Studies program.

“Dr. Moore’s research will attract anyone interested in (World War II), even if they’re not typically interested in Jewish studies,” said Richard Steigmann-Gall, associate professor of history and director of the Jewish Studies Program at Kent State.
