Showing of  La Grande Illusion

at the Mawhah Public Library 100 Ridge Rd Mahwah, NJ
in the Winter Room

 Saturday Sept. 9 at 2pm.

The celebration of the Centennial of WWI continues with a screening of the 1937 French film “La Grande Illusion” followed by a discussion with Professor Thomas Heed who was the Dean of American and International Studies at Ramapo College for forty years. Professor Heed lectures on the United States in World War I and World War II.

About the film: during the First World War, two French soldiers are captured and imprisoned in a German P.O.W. camp. Several escape attempts follow until they are sent to a fortress which seems impossible to escape from.
