Richard Cahan Speaks at Emanuel Congregation on the Evening of December 5

Richard Cahan, the co-author of Un-American: The Incarceration of Japanese Americans During World War Two will be speaking at Emanuel Congregation, 5959 N. Sheridan Road on Wednesday evening, December 5, at 7:00 pm. This is a free community event and open to the public.
As the authors state “in the spring of 1942, the United States rounded up 109,000 residents of Japanese ancestry living along the West Coast and sent them to detention centers for the duration of the Second World War. Amazingly, the government hired famed photographers Dorothea Lange, Ansel Adams, and others to document the expulsion—–from assembling Japanese Americans at racetracks to confining them in ten camps spread across the country. Their photographs give an emotional and unflinching portrait of a nation concerned more about security than human rights. These photographs are more important now than ever.”
Please rsvp for the event to richardreeder34@gmail.com. There is a small parking lot with free parking adjacent to the synagogue. Paid parking is available at the Malibu just north of the synagogue.
