    I believe much of it was shot on Type 55 iirc. An incredible project on a controversial period in American history.

    It was very interesting to see the original photos, many by Dorothea lang, along side photographs of the same people 70 years older and their stories.
    Very sobering that these interment camps were run by my own country in a time when we were fighting against those very ideas.

    While were were trying Nazis, for War Crimes, in 1946.....were were hanging Niggers from trees for talking to white women, or executing them based on lies and false evidence given in courtrooms.
    OUR Courtrooms, where Justice Is Blind. :sad:
    Our own racial terrorism, and system of segregation and forced transfer of wealth Was NOT lost on The Nazis..
    It is a real shame, what a kid in Germany reads about history as it relates to his country, and what a kid in the usa reads in a book about the same thing.

    History tells us the evil is not on the other side of the globe, or even next door.
    It is buried in our hearts, waiting for it's time.

    Yes. We are all capable of evil. All it takes are divisive politician to wake up the evil. Humans are a duality of good and evil. Embrace both and be aware of its power. Be aware of politicians that exploit our evil side.
