Window on the World Talk: The Great Escape: The Real Story – T278 (Face to Face and Online)
4 May 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm BST
Joanna first saw The Great Escape film as a young child and had a particular interest as her father, Squadron Leader Alec Bristow, was a WWII Mosquito pilot and a prisoner-of-war in Stalag Luft III where the famous ‘Great Escape’ took place.
Joanna has used her extensive research, her father’s anecdotes and his wartime diary to give a fascinating insight into what it was really like for an RAF officer in the camp.
How ambitious were the preparations and plans? What actually took place on 24 March 1944 and what were the after-effects of this bold affront to the Nazi regime?
