The movie “Unbroken” is being released in theaters on Christmas Day.
Eckhart Public Library has several copies of the book to check out if the movie inspires you to read the book. We’ve also compiled some great World War II stories, including Lost in Shangri-La, Ghost Soldiers, and Five Came Back.
Unbroken is the story of Louis Zamperini, a U.S. Olympian who, during World War II, became an airman, “embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.”
Zamperini competed in the 1936 Olympics with Auburn native Don Lash, and Lash’s photograph appears in the book “Unbroken.” You can read a short piece about Lash from the KPC Media Group archives here.
