Note Time. “All Quiet on the Western Front” is one of
the greatest war films ever made. The 1930 Oscar winning film
is based on the novel by Erich Maria Remarque, a German veteran of
World War I. The film depicts the extreme physical and mental
stress German soldiers' endured during the war, and the subsequent
detachment they felt from civilian life upon returning home.
A story that reflects the experience of many of today’s
veterans. Open to Harvard students, fellows, faculty, and staff.
No RSVP required. First Come first served. Pizza and soft drinks will be served. The “Military Film Series,” sponsored by Belfer Center’s
Defense and Intelligence Projects, examines moral and ethical
dilemmas portrayed in films about war and conflict. Students
are confronted with the choices made in war and asked to analyze
and assess those choices.
