I am trying to see if this link is a full list. If not where can I find one?

    I'm going to guess there were more than 300 Jewish people in WWII. I presume you mean US soldiers who served in WWII? Could you clarify? – Schwern Feb 25 '16 at 4:38

    That list apparently only aims to include includes those who fell in action, and does not claim to be complete – Henry Feb 25 '16 at 8:29
  • Somewhat ironically the question is also unclear who is considered Jew .. – Greg Feb 28 '16 at 15:38

No, this is a very short list.

This Wikipedia article puts the number of Jewish-American soldiers at about 500,000.

I can confirm that neither my grandfather or his brother (KIA), US soldiers serving in France during 1944 and 1945, are on the list that you have linked to.


It would be very difficult to find a full list because in the US, Jews are considered white, and large numbers of racial Jews are not Jews by religion. So I doubt there is anywhere on the internet you could find such a list.

For reference, most eligible men were drafted in WW2. So any given male born 1916-27 likely served in the war. You can look up census records for Jewish sounding names, but this will not be a comprehensive list because it doesn't consider unfit for service or crypto-Jews.


What percentage of eligible men were drafted during WW2 and Vietnam?
