Encore showing of the film "The Girl Who Wore Freedom"

We know of the Veterans experiences, this film is to learn what the children saw and experienced. Now as adults the then children share their stories beginning in the early morning hours of D-Day.

 

For four long years, the people of Normandy had no choice but to live with the Germans. The state of being under the control of the Germans meant different things for the Normans. The occupation was harsh and a constant reality of life, and collaboration between the Normans and Germans was sadly inevitable.

 

Directed by Christian Taylor,  there will be a Q & A after the show.
