Trying To Right A Terrible Wrong
August 12, 2008 Leave a comment
In their August 3, 2008 edition, the Rafu Shimpo published a story about a new documentary project about Ruth Mix, a Caucasian woman who volunteered at the Gila River concentration camp and was the only Caucasian on the camp staff.
Her mother, Frida, got her the volunteer job at Gila River because she, “…thought it was important for her daughter to understand the injustice against her fellow Americans and to do what she could to help them. Her motto was, ‘we must right a terrible wrong.’”
The documentary, which will be titled, Gila River and Mama, is being produced by Ruth Mix’s daughter, Claire, and will feature videotaped interviews with her mother.
For more, you can read the full story: Trying To Right A Terrible Wrong.
