"Valor with Honor" is an indepedent documentary film based on more than 35 interviews of Japanese American veterans who served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II. This small, segregated unit of 3500 men is the most decorated unit for its size and length of service (3 years).

The film tells the harrowing stories of the 442nd battles in Italy, the "Lost Battalion" rescue in France, the assault up Mount Folgorito, and to their witness of the Holocaust at Dachau, Germany at the close fo the war. The film concludes with the veterans' bittersweet return home to America.

A conversation with filmmaker Burt Takeuchi follows the film.

Free and open to the public. Please check back at www.apa.nyu.edu for more information.
