The story of Postville will open your eyes and shake your deepest human and patriotic convictions. It is at once an epic story of survival, hope, and humble aspirations, of triumph, defeat, and rebirth. You will see the profound personal sacrifice of dozens of simple parents, toiling to secure a dignified future for their children, tragically fall prey to a secular injustice, and yet rise as a living and enduring testament to the human spirit. this is the story of a Heartland town struggling to survive and keep together its multiethnic fabric against the arbitrary shredder in the blades of prejudice and globalization. It is the spectacle of the world’s most powerful government crushing the lives of the most humble and destitute. but it is also the momentous history of a community and a nation rising together to reclaim its democratic values, its humanistic spirit, and its rightful place in the community of nations, as the last champion of liberty.” Dr. Erik Camayd-Freixas, Certified Federal Interpreter and Author of Interpreting after the largest ICE raid in US History: A Personal Account
