Saturday: July 21 and Sunday: July 22
Starting at 11:00 AM
The museum will be presenting a series of World War II documentaries as part of the 74th Guam Liberation Festival. We will be presenting: Unknown Warriors of World War II and the Emmy Award-Winning, The Legacy of Heart Mountain. Both films were produced by Emmy Award-Winning News Anchor and Filmmaker David Ono.
Unknown Warriors of World War II documents the little known and remarkable courage of the Japanese American infantry men who served in segregated units in Europe. David Ono travels to France and Italy, to a small village that that still honors them to this day. He also documents the Liberation of the Nazi Concentration camps in Dachaou just minutes before a group was placed in a firing squad.
The Legacy of Heart Mountain isa spectacular backdrop to a story of triumph and tragedy. During World War II, an interment camp filled with over 10,000 Japanese Americans sat in the shadow of the mountain. The US government imprisoned tis own people based on nationality.
We will also be presenting the popular series of Guam Liberation Documentaries:
- An Island Invaded
- Guam’s Liberation
- Liberating Guam
- War for Guam
