All Quiet on the Western Front

As part of our unit on WWI, students are watching All Quiet on the Western Front, based on the antiwar novel by Eric Maria Remarque.

The original 1930 movie version was a multiple Academy Award winning film.  This year, a war picture set in 2004 Iraq with a more ambiguous message, The Hurt Locker, scooped up a number of Oscar nominations and awards.
