Now 95 years old, Susumu “Sus” Ito, PhD and emeritus professor at Harvard Medical School, was a member of the 522nd Field Artillery Battalion of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team during World War II.

Smuggling a camera with him on his tour of duty, he took the breathtaking photographs on display in Before They Were Heroes, capturing the day-to-day lives of a group of young Japanese American soldiers.

With moderator Don Nose, President of Go For Broke National Education Center, Ito will discuss his life during this critical period in American history.
