WW1 Heroism: Through Art and Film University of Leeds
Week 2: Changing faces of heroism
The short videos this week look at ways in which Germany has been re-interpreting and re-imagining their WWI heroes.
The films considered are:
Der rote Baron (2008) (gives Manfred von Richthofen a Jewish buddy)
Joyeux Noël (2005) (Jewish buddies and opera singers)
Das weiße Band - Eine deutsche Kindergeschichte (2009) Not so jolly.
The assignment this week:
Post your own short, informal review of a current book or film about WWI. (Short means short - max 250 words.) We included a booklist in our post last week.
Then a final exam. Optional.
