 ABOUT THE MOVIE

WOULD YOU RISK EVERYTHING - YOUR FUTURE, YOUR CITIZENSHIP, EVEN YOUR LIFE TO HELP A BROTHER IN NEED?  

In 1948, just three years after the liberation of Nazi death camps, a group of Jewish American pilots answered a call for help. In secret and at great personal risk, they smuggled planes out of the U.S., trained behind the Iron Curtain in Czechoslovakia and flew for Israel   in its War of Independence. As members of Machal – “volunteers from abroad” – this ragtag band of brothers not only turned the tide of the war; they also embarked on personal journeys of discovery and renewed Jewish pride. 


A Q&A SESSION WILL FOLLOW THE MOVIE 
with brothers Mike and John Lichter talking about their father George Lichter’s heroic efforts in the creation of the State of Israel. George Lichter is one of the 11 heroes featured in the movie.

GEORGE LICHTER The former U.S. Army Air Force pilot flew 88 missions over Europe in World War II. After Lichter volunteered for Israel, he was singled out for his expertise as a flight instructor and trained the first wave of Israeli pilots. He became Israel’s chief flight instructor. “I really did get a lot of satisfaction training those pilots,” Lichter says. “That was the beginning of the Israeli Air Force.” Lichter passed away in Boulder, Colorado in 2013at the age of 92.
