SYNOPSIS

22nd November 1918, eleven days after the signing of the armistice put an end to World War I, the French army, welcomed by a jubilant crowd, marched into Strasbourg. After half a century under German rule, Alsace returned to France like a child separated from its mother for too long. The reality was nevertheless a lot more complicated.
Pulled between two cultures, what was the Alsatians’ experience of this war? And how Alsace was used, by both sides, to justify one of the bloodiest conflicts in history.
Between propaganda and combat in the snowy heights, Alsace was more than a mere battle field.
