FILM SCREENING IN HONOR OF THE
72ND ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY
Thursday, June 2, 2016
6:30 - 8:45 p.m.
D-Day occurred during World War II on June 6, 1944, when more than 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. It remains one of the largest seaborn invasions in history. In spite of heavy losses, by July,1944 some one million Allied troops, mostly American, British and Canadian, were entrenched in Normandy. This accomplishment was crucial in bringing the war to the western border of Germany and ultimately helped guarantee the Allied forces' success against Nazi Germany.
In honor of the bravery and sacrifice displayed during this campaign, we will be screening Unbroken (PG-13), the story of Olympian Louis Zamperini, a bombardier in the U.S. Army during World War II. After his plane crashed in the Pacific, he spent 47 days adrift in a life raft with two fellow crewmen before being discovered by the Japanese navy. As a prisoner-of-war in Japan, Zamperini endured terror, torture, and hopelessness. In spite of this, he survived, and years later was able to forgive those who had harmed him.
The movie is based on the best-selling novel Unbroken: a World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand.
Join us to witness the triumph of a human spirit against fear, hatred, pain and sorrow. Please register at the Children's Desk.
