“A World at War, 1937-1945:
Triumph, Tragedy, Memory, and Myth”
With the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II in 2015, Monmouth University is pleased to present five films on the life-and-death decisions that people made in the invaded countries to survive in the war, defend their homeland and beliefs, and protect their families. Collectively, the films show episodes of resistance, collaboration, and heroism in addition to the legacy of the global war for the later 20th century and our current century as well.
All movies will be shown in the Pollak Theatre at Monmouth University.
Free of charge and open to the Monmouth University community and the general public.
