Join Krista Finstad Hanson, a local writer, historian and teacher, for a discussion of her research about largely untold accounts of Japanese and Japanese Americans' World War II experience in Minnesota.
Learn about Minnesota's pre-war Japanese community, the Military Intelligence Service Language School at Fort Snelling, and how Japanese and Japanese Americans from concentration camps were resettled in Minnesota during the war. Hanson will share stories about this community's efforts to begin their lives anew in Minnesota and about the people who helped them.
This program is co-sponsored by the Twin Cities Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League.
