As Americans mark Memorial Day on May 25, the Bildner Center shares highlights of a program cosponsored with the Rutgers Office of Military and Veteran Programs: Footsteps of My Father, the moving story of one American who saved Jewish POWs during World War II.

The Rutgers Oral History Archives includes testimonies of Rutgers alumni who are veterans.
