ONLINE: The Teachers’ Protest Screening

March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

1942. Occupied Norway. Teachers must join the Nazi Teachers’ League and teach Nazi ideas in their classrooms. 8,000 of them write protest letters. They are threatened with salary withdrawal and the sack. Still, they refuse. In a desperate attempt to break them, the Nazi government arrests 1000 male teachers and sends them to prison camps, 300 miles above the Arctic Circle. The education system is in chaos and now the battle begins.

Produced and directed by Jon Seal, this documentary weaves together archive footage, first-hand testimony, and the animation of Herlov Åmland’s drawings to tell this gripping story to an international audience for the first time.

Running time 78 mins, with a Q & A to follow the screening.
