The Fields of Margraten: Bitter Harvest

Film & Reception

Doors Open 5:45PM

 

In 1944, the Netherlands town of Margraten had 1300 residents. By the V-Day there lives had been changed forever after a US Army company of 280 African American service men were commanded to take over much of their farm lands and dig the largest American and Allied forces cemetery in World War II, interring over 28,000. In 2009, one of those gravediggers and a New Fairfield resident, Jeff Wiggins was interviewed during the making the sobering documentary: The Fields of Margraten

Jeff Wiggins and his wife Janice will start the Q & A, then the conversation will continue in the lobby of The Palace Theatre with a reception sponsored by Union Savings Bank featuring the fine food of executive chef; Michael Bick’s “Somethings Fishy Catering” complimented by Belgium’s newest export; PALM Beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages.

Tickets are $25.00 for film and reception
There may be film only tickets available at the door.
