Part I: An Alien Place: The Fort Missoula Detention Camp 1941-1944. Come to a free screening of this compelling documentary that has been nominated for an Emmy. Our Constitution (and civil liberties) were abridged in a time of war and fear-bred hysteria. The film peels back some layers to reveal the human repercussions for thousands of innocents who were separated from their loved ones and livelihoods, that we should never forget their stories - or the lesson for us today.
