The Australian Jewish Military Database contains the names and details of some 6,500 Jewish men and women who enlisted in the Colonial, Australian and other Empire armed forces to serve in the Second Boer (or South African) War, World War One and World War Two.
This database is dedicated to the 342 Australian Jews who made the supreme sacrifice on behalf of their country in defence of freedom, peace and tolerance.
Many of these were born outside Australia and now lie in France or Turkey or places further afield.
This database details names including alternate names, date and place of birth, identification numbers, service medals and incorporates links directly to the corresponding entry in the National Archive of Australia.
The Australian Jewish Military Database is an Education Project of the Centenary of Anzac Jewish Program (CoAJP) in conjunction with the Sydney Jewish Museum (SJM), as part of the Australia-wide Anzac Centenary (2014 to 2018) activities in collaboration with the Australian Jewish Historical Society (AJHS).
Users are invited to contribute to the accuracy and utility of the Society’s archives and databases by providing corrections and/or additional information.
