The film “Monaco and the War” was screened in the Princess Grace Theatre on Thursday night in the presence of Prince Albert.

“Monaco and the War” is a well-documented evocation of living conditions in the Principality between 1939 and 1945. The emotion of the various witnesses who appeared in the narrative, the quality of the editing and its symbolic significance make it a captivating testimony of the links between Monaco and this period in world history.

At the end of the screening, and in the presence of the Sovereign, several of those who appeared in the film were invited to take the stage of the theatre with their relatives for an emotional “family photo”.

Directed by journalist and writer Frédéric Laurent, more than four years of work went into making the film, which was co-produced by the Government’s Communication Department, the Society for the Management of Copyright (SOGEDA) and the Estate Administration of the Sovereign Prince.

It was first screened in January to teaching staff as well as to the association Pour le Devoir de Mémoire (For the Duty of Memory). It will also be broadcast on Monaco Info on Tuesday, May 1, at 7 pm.
