Unforgotten – 25 Years After Willowbrook DVD

Call number: HV 3004 .U53 2002

 It was a nightmare that shocked not only New York, but all of America. The public outcry about the Willowbrook State School for people with developmental disabilities resulted from Geraldo Rivera’s expose after he had entered Willowbrook with a film crew in 1972, using a stolen key. UNFORGOTTEN takes us on a tour of  the facilities and interviews residents and their families about the inhumane treatment that shocked our nation. “The integration of the developmentally disabled into mainstream society; I think that is the triumph of the Willowbrook saga.”— Geraldo Rivera
