REF NO.: 80

SUBJECT: SWGC: The Life that I Have Is Yours
DATE: Nov. 1, 2005

Grenfell College’s annual Remembrance Day Presentation will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 12:30 p.m. in LC301, the lecture theatre in the Library and Computing Building.

The title this year is The Life that I Have Is Yours, taken from a short poem (to be included in the presentation) that was the cipher of Violette Szabo, an undercover agent for the Allies, operating in France in World War II (she was half French, half English). She was captured and tortured by the Gestapo, resisted giving them any information, and was executed by firing squad at Ravensbruck concentration camp for women only weeks before the war came to an end.

Devised by Dr. David Freeman, this presentation in words and music on war and sacrifice will be performed by Grenfell students, staff and faculty.
