Citizen Tanouye: Japanese-American WWII Hero’s Story Explored by Students, Produced by Glendale Resident

Citizen Tanouye follows the life-changing journey of eight Torrance High School students who set out to uncover the story of Ted Tanouye, a Japanese-American Torrance High School alumnus, World War II hero, and Medal of Honor recipient.

Glendale resident Robert Horsting produced the documentary, which will screen at the Glendale Central Library August 14, 2014, at 7pm […]
