Film: Lucky Strike

Lucky Strike: When the Americans Came to Our Village is a World War II documentary film by Jan-Olof Nilsson based on his 2013 book about the Allied crews who, after bombing missions deep into Germany, desperately flew to Sweden when their planes were too damaged by flak or fighters to make it back to England.

Cost is free for Swedish American Genealogical Society members; $10 for non-members to participate. Reservations appreciated and can be made via email to genealogy@samac.org or by calling the Museum at 773.728.8111.
