In conjunction with the exhibit Taken: FBI at the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center , join Neil H. Simon, award-winning filmmaker and journalist, for the premiere of his new film, Prisoners and Patriots , which documents the Department of Justice internment camp in Santa Fe as well as the internment experience in Lordsburg and Fort Stanton in the state’s south. From 1942 to 1946 (six months after the war’s end), the Santa Fe camp held more than 4,500 men – mostly community leaders, teachers, Buddhist ministers and others – people who the U.S government most feared would organize Japanese loyalty during World War II.

A conversation with the filmmaker will follow the screening. Held on Friday, April 22, at 6:30pm and again on Saturday, April 23, at 1:30pm at the University of Oregon in Portland, Room 142/44. Free and open to the public. Hosted by the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Oregon in Portland.
