IDA-Supported Doc of the Week
May is Jewish American Heritage Month! This week's film celebrates the courageous lawyer, Aaron Sapiro, who took on Henry Ford who released a 21-article barrage of lies, distortions, and innuendo against him and other Jewish Americans. With little support, Sapiro sues Ford in federal court in Detroit. In the end, the automaker was forced to issue an apology to the Jewish people and dismantle his printing press. With the rise of anti-Semitism throughout the world, it's important to learn about those who came before us who led the fight to hold those who do wrong accountable for their actions.
