Internment of Japanese Americans during WWII

Internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

The exhibit, which takes its title from the Japanese word "to pass on to the next generation" seeks to preserve the accounts and document the events experienced by Japanese Americans during World War II, when citizens of the same ethnicity as only one of the nation's enemies were essentially stripped of their rights. Within its substantial archives, the exhibit contains in excess of 800 hours of interviews and first person narratives, as well more than 10,000 images detailing the history of Japanese immigrants in America.
