Louise Williams — A True Story of the Great Escape

Shot down and captured by German forces during WWII, Louise William’s uncle, Australian Squadron Leader John Williams DFC found himself a POW at the infamous Stalag Luft III in 1942. Two years later, he was one of 76 prisoners who participated in the daring Great Escape from the camp through a series of tunnels.

Join Louise Williams for a fascinating talk about piecing together her uncle’s story, his upbringing through the Great Depression and the harrowing events of the Great Escape — a tale that later inspired a major Hollywood motion picture!
