Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans.  Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange, AND THEN THEY CAME FOR US brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban.  Knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it. AND THEN THEY CAME FOR US is a cautionary and inspiring tale for these dark times.

“It was moving to be with George Takei at the Alphawood Gallery in Chicago as he discussed his experiences in the camps at Rohwer, Arkansas and Tule Lake. George is spreading the word that we all have to resist hate and the Muslim travel ban or we are doomed to repeat one of the darkest chapters in US history.”
Abby Ginzberg ’71, Co-Director

“I’ve seen pretty much every film on the Japanese American incarceration experience in recent years, and this was definitely one of the most powerful and informative. Moreover, the film deftly related the Japanese American experience to today’s issues of civil liberties infringement, making it a must-see film for these difficult times.”
