View historic photographs of Japanese-Americans during WWII taken by War Relocation Authority photographers—including Dorothea Lange and Tom Parker—juxtaposed with contemporary portraits of the same individuals or their descendants from Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. This exhibit provides a visual exploration of the Japanese concept of gambatte, or to triumph over adversity, and chronicles the legacy of Japanese Americans who persevered over their incarceration during World War II through a display of past and present images from an often-overlooked chapter of U.S. history.

The exhibit is supported by the National Parks Service, Tanforan Assembly Center Memorial Committee, Contra Costa Japanese American Citizens League, Asian Pacific Endowment of the St. Paul Foundation, Twin Cities Japanese American Citizens League and the Joseph and Marie Winter Family Fund for Historic Fort Snelling.

The exhibit is on view May 27-October 28.
