‘6 Brothers’ screening here: Documentary features story of family during the Depression


Finding a treasure trove of letters written during World War II prompted University of Jamestown alum Daniel Stenberg to share his family’s story in the form of a documentary — “6 Brothers: A Story of Hope, Loss and Perseverance on the Northern Plains.”

“It focuses on what it was like growing up in the Great Depression and after the Depression, World War II happens,” Stenberg said. “Two brothers were drafted. One served in Europe, one in the South Pacific.”
