The Great Escape

screenings of movie worldwide for 75th anniversary of the historical facts

"In 1944, 76 prisoners of war (PoW) attempted to escape from a Nazi camp through tunnels they had painstakingly dug underground at Stalag Luft III. Only three of the men managed to escape to safety, while 50 of the 73 who were recaptured were killed." The 1963 movie, starring Steve McQueen, was screened all over the world in March 2019 to commemorate the brave Western soldiers, who were the protagonists of such heroic deeds.
