As the U.S. commemorates the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 which was signed by President Roosevelt on Feb. 19, 1942, the film documents through the photos taken by Dorothea Lange and others, the damage this order did to 120,000 people, two thirds of whom were American citizens. Featuring actor and activist, George Takei and many other Japanese Americans who were incarcerated, And Then They Came for Us, demonstrates the importance of speaking up against any efforts to register or ban Muslims today. Knowing our history is the first step in making sure we do not repeat it. And Then They Came for Us is a cautionary tale for these dark times.

Following the film will be a post-film discussion with the director of «And Then They Came for Us...,» Abby Ginzberg.
