RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A flag related to the movie “Unbroken” directed by Angelina Jolie is on display in Virginia.
The film portrays the early life of Louis Zamperini, from his troubled youth to an Olympic medal and amazing survival at sea and in a brutal Japanese prison camp during World War II.
A makeshift American flag hoisted when the Omori Prison Camp was liberated in August 1945, is on display at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond. It was one of the camps at which Zamperini was interned.
A group of prisoners made the flag out of a bed sheet and whatever other materials they could find.
