The Washington County Historical Society presents
film screening of The Education of Johnny Schnell

Sunday, October 21, 2018 • 2:00pm



At the height of the Cold War, local Washington County boy John Schnell was chosen by the United States government to star in a film that was never intended to be shown in the United States. "The Education of Johnny Schnell" followed the daily life of an all-American boy, and became a widely circulated propaganda film in Asia during the 1960s and 70s. General John Schnell will also share his photographs, film related memorabilia, and personal experiences.
