 Ace Presents: 

Special Presentation for Veteran's Day
Documentary Film- Veteran's Day 11.11.11

Award winning Director John C.P. Goheen reached out to more than 40 of the country's most accomplished video storytellers, asking them to volunteer their time and talent to produce a series of profiles about the service shared by all veterans, and the ultimate sacrifices made by many. Weaving together these profiles and stories, the result of this collaboration is Veteran's Day 11.11.11, a documentary of a nationwide "day in the life" exploration of what it means to be a military veteran in the United States. Every story in the movie contains elements shot on Veterans Day 2011, 11.11.11.
Introduction by Ellie Hart

The Nazi Officer's Wife

The Nazi Officer's Wife is the story of a Jewish woman in 1930's Vienna, who with the help of friends, moved to Munich, hid her identity and married Nazi Party member, thus saving her life. In this fascinating story, Angela Schluter tells the story of her mother's life as the Nazi Officer's Wife and her own story of her upbringing as arguably the only Jew born in an Aryan hospital during the war.

ACE Presents: "Paradise in Peril"

Florida with its warm weather, sandy beaches and blue green water is often referred to as a "Paradise". In recent history however, "Paradise" has been in peril. During WWII, thousands of soldiers passed through, trained, or recuperated from wounds here. This program spotlights Palm Beach County and its residents, including the "Puddle Jumpers" of Lantana, men and women who risked their lives flying small, civilian land-based planes to hunt German U-boats off the Florida coast, and played an important role in the war effort.

Speaker: Richard A. Marconi, is the Curator of Education at the Palm Beach Historical Society. He is the author of the book, Palm Beach, Then and Now, a pictorial book which illustrates the shifts in Palm Beach's architectural landscape over the decades. He also coauthored the book Palm Beach for the images of America series.
