442: LIVE WITH HONOR - DIE WITH DIGNITY (2010, 98 min)
Directed by Junichi Suzuki. During WWII, soldiers of the 442nd Infantry Regiment, composed mainly of Japanese Americans, were facing severe racial discrimination in their homeland. However, the 442nd became one of the most decorated regiments for its size and length of service in the history of the United States military.

The 522nd Field Artillery Battalion of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, many of whom volunteered from internment camps, ironically liberated the last several hundred Jewish prisoners from a concentration camp in Dachau in Germany. Harry S. Truman, the 33rd President of the United States said to these men You fought not only the enemy, but fought prejudice-and you won. This is not only the Japanese American history, but also the history of American Democracy.
