After the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans were placed in internment camps around the country.
Father Flanagan worked tirelessly to shelter and safely relocate
hundreds of internees through Boys Town between 1943 and the end of the war.
A triumph of human decency over reactionary politics, xenophobia and fear, this chapter in Omaha's history stands to remind us that
we are truly our neighbor's keeper.
