The Ritchie Boys < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >
Directed by Christian Bauer
Documentary • 93 minutes • Germany / Canada

They were young. The world’s most unlikely soldiers. As teenagers they had escaped the Nazis. They trained in intelligence work and psychological warfare, and returned to Europe as US soldiers - with the greatest motivation to fight this war: They were Jewish. They called themselves “The Ritchie Boys.”
In The Ritchie Boys these remarkable, funny, sharp, brave men share their memories with us. On the front lines from the beaches of Normandy onwards, the Ritchie Boys interrogated German prisoners, defectors and civilians, collected information of tactical and strategic importance: about troop size and movements, about the psychological situation of the enemy, and the inner workings of the Nazi-regime. They drafted leaflets, produced radio broadcasts and even published a German newspaper dropped behind enemy lines.
