Join Facing History and Ourselves and the Brooks Museum for a special screening of And Then They Came for Us.
This history of Japanese American internment during World War II is retold in this documentary from Abby Ginzberg and Ken Schneider.
The film brings history into the present, linking the removal of constitutional rights of Japanese Americans during World War II with the steps toward dehumanization today. Following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the proposed Muslim registry and travel ban, the film will catalyze discussions about the roles we can each play to combat hatred and bigotry. Facing History and Ourselves will lead a discussion after the screening.
