SF’s HERstory Festival: 100+ Events

The author of The Tango War: The Struggle for the Hearts, Minds and Riches of Latin America During World War II, will discuss this forgotten piece of history.

In 1942 the U.S. kidnapped more than 6,000 ethnic Japanese, German, and Italian residents of Latin America to exchange for U.S. civilians caught behind enemy lines in the Pacific and Europe. Jews who thought they could escape to Jewish communities in Latin countries found doors shut, and were returned to Europe, sometimes to death. The author will focus on some of the stories of the women affected by these events.
