Silent Sacrifice by director Jeff Aiello reveals the true story of one of the darkest chapters in America’s past: the relocation and incarceration of Japanese-American in 1942. After Japan’s surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Japanese Americans and immigrants who called the United States home were subjected to one of the largest violation of civil liberties in our nation’s history. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, and, by May of the same year, nearly 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry, most legal American citizens, were forced to leave their homes, their schools, their businesses and their lives behind and relocate to military-controlled concentration camps. This documentary focuses on our local history of this tragic past and presents witnesses who might be your friends and/or neighbors.  117 minutes.  Film website: https://valleypbs.org/sacrifice/
