“The Choice” is a gift to humanity.  One of those rare and eternal stories that you don’t want to end and that leave you forever changed. Dr. Eger’s life reveals our capacity to transcend even the greatest of horrors and to use that suffering for the benefit of others.  She has found true freedom and forgiveness and shows us how we can as well. —DESMOND TUTU, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate

 

“In this extraordinary chronicle of heroism and healing, Dr. Eger shows us how to escape the prisons of our own minds . . . Millions of people can learn from Dr. Eger’s inspiring cases and shocking personal story as well as her profound clinical wisdom to heal their lives.”
   —PHILIP ZIMBARDO, PhD, Stanford professor emeritus of psychology and New York Times bestselling author of The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil

Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans.  Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange, And Then They Came for Us brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban.  Knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it.  And Then They Came for Us is a cautionary and inspiring tale for these dark times. Please partner with us to share this critical story.

“It was a failure of American democracy, and yet because most Americans are not aware of that dark chapter of American history, it’s about to be repeated.”

– George Takei, Actor and Activist
