Harry Shindler - My War is Not Over
Harry is in his 97th year and is as indefatigable as ever. Following the showing of the film at AUR about him, this veteran of the 1944 Anzio landings had a simple message. Thousands of young men the age of our students perished for a purpose – the liberation of Europe from totalitarianism. We have had more than 70 years of peace thanks to their sacrifice. We need to remember and honour that sacrifice, because democracy and peace are more precious than ever.
It is a privilege to know Harry but the growing deafness to his message makes the distribution and showing of this film all the more important, as everyone present well understood.
Harry Shindler - indefatigable at 97.
