The Vietnam War film and discussion program utilizes short videos and a trained facilitator to prompt discussion about the Vietnam era. Content is culled from Ken Burns’ and Lynn Novick’s PBS documentary, “The Vietnam War,” which tells the story of one of the most consequential and divisive events in American history. The videos explore the human dimensions of war that still haunt us today. Witnesses from all sides give their personal testimonies—Americans who fought in the war, those who opposed it, as well as combatants and civilians from North and South Vietnam.

These programs are offered in partnership with New Hampshire PBS.

This 21-minute video features war stories told by American, North Vietnamese, and South Vietnamese soldiers. One story explores moral injury by following a disabled Vietnam Marine veteran who supports young warriors deployed during the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.

Mark Gilbertson will be the facilitator.
