Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience
On view June 30–September 3, 2018
Through use of images, audio, and interactive elements, this exhibit provides a 360-degree perspective of the WWII experience of Americans of Japanese ancestry, while exploring its relevance today. Learn the stories of Japanese Americans — and of the bravery, integrity, and extraordinary support of Japanese Americans within ten communities across the country — during and immediately after WWII.
The exhibit also chronicles a myriad of stories of Japanese American community-building and civic engagement in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
This project is funded, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service, Japanese American Confinement Site Grant Program and made possible through collaboration between Go For Broke National Education Center and the Twin Cities Japanese American Citizens League. Additional support provided by the Earl Tanbara Japanese-American History Endowment Fund.
