Museum Closed. Film postponed.
The Bruce Museum is closed all day on Wednesday, March 21, due to the snow forecast. The films will be rescheduled as follows:
March 28, 10:30 – 11:30 am. Film. The Great War: Part I (2018) PBS (60 minutes)
April 4, 10:30 – 11:30 am. Film. The Great War: Part II (2018) PBS (60 minutes)
Drawing on unpublished diaries, memoirs and letters, The Great War tells the story of World War I through the voices of nurses, journalists, aviators and the American troops who came to be known as “doughboys.” The series explores the experiences of African-American and Latino soldiers, suffragists, Native American “code talkers,” and others whose participation in the war to “make the world safe for democracy” has been largely forgotten. It is a story of heroism and sacrifice that would ultimately claim 15 million lives and profoundly change the world forever.
Advance reservations required at brucemuseum.org/site/events: Free for Bruce members, $10 for non-members (includes Museum admission).
