All Quiet on the Western Front: Movie Screening and Discussion
Join us for a viewing and discussion of the Oscar-winning All Quiet on the Western Front, based on the novel by Erich Maria Remarque. Lauded as one of the most powerful anti-war statements ever put on film, this gut-wrenching story concerns a group of friends who join the Army during World War I and are assigned to the Western Front, where their fiery patriotism is quickly turned to horror and misery by the harsh realities of combat. Dr. Adam T. Rosenbaum, Associate Professor of Modern European History, Colorado Mesa University will facilitate the discussion following the film. This film screening is offered at no charge.
