Hero Among Us Documentary at Coe College

Cedar Rapids, IA
Coe College
Documentary Screening Announced!

John Gualtier is living a quiet life in his hometown of Vinton, Iowa when a local schoolteacher discovers he has a secret: He is actually a decorated war hero. WWII Army Medic, Sgt. John Gualtier was a liberator of the little known Gunskirchen Lager concentration camp. Amazingly, filmmakers find a survivor of that same camp. The documentary details two separate lives that intersect at the same place and time. Though these men survived the war, could they survive the peace? For one of them, life after the war would prove just as challenging.

Hero Among Us will be shown April 25th at 7 pm at Coe College, Kesler Hall.

Production from A Hero Among Us is funded by The Thaler Holocaust Memorial Fund and major media grants from Humanities Iowa and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
