Cordially invite you to attend the U.S. Premieres of
The American in Paris: The True Story of the American Hospital of Paris in World War I
At Home and Over There: American Women Physicians in World War I
The American in Paris and At Home and Over There bring to the screen the little-known story of American volunteers in France during the First World War. Centered around The American Hospital of Paris and the contribution of women physicians during the conflict, these two films show how thousands of medical staff stepped up to help France and, in doing so, strengthened ties between the two nations and created a legacy of American generosity abroad.
An exhibition will also present the story of The American Hospital of Paris and the American Community during the four years of the Great War.
This event is organized in the framework of the centennial Commemoration of the United States’ Entrance into World War I (1917 – 2017)
