The Fall of 55 Free Screening

When: Sun., June 12, 3 p.m. 2016

The Wassmuth Center for Human Rights is hosting a free-to-the-public showing of Seth Randal's The Fall of 55. In late 1955 and early 1956, the citizens of Boise believed there was a menace in their midst. On Halloween, investigators arrested three men on charges of having sex with teenage boys. The investigators claimed the arrests were just the tip of the iceberg. They said hundreds of boys were being abused as part of a child sex ring. There was no such ring, but the result was a widespread investigation resulting in 16 men being charged.
