“The Whistleblower of My Lai” webinar

March 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

The My Lai massacre occurred 53 years ago. It was not the only atrocity committed by US or other military forces, but because of Ron Haeberle’s powerful photos, it is best known.

Yet then or now little attention is paid to responsibility for an indisputable war crime. Nor is recognition given to courageous life-saving intervention by Hugh Thompson and his helicopter crew and how they were treated afterwards by the US military and government.

A singularly evocative effort to grapple with the unresolved political and moral challenge of My Lai is an opera commissioned by the Kronos Quartet and a performance masterfully documented by Connie Field.

First watch the film here with family and friends.
