Manzanar – A Veteran’s Day Story: Pfc. Robert E. Borchers’ Fight for Freedom

November 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Event Navigation

In October, 1943, twenty-two year old Marine Pfc. Robert E. Borchers wrote a fiery letter in defense of Japanese Americans. Robert had learned that, while he was at war in the Pacific, the United States had incarcerated 120,000 people. His letter was published in Time Magazine, angering some but lifting the spirits of many others – including Japanese Americans who read his words from behind barbed-wire.
Come hear Robert Borchers Jr. share his father’s incredible story.
