My mother was born in 1928 in Seattle & had neighbors who were Japanese. She played with their daughter named Tishiko, who was similar in age. My mom moved when her dad switched jobs, and often wondered what happened to that family during WWII.

I had never even heard about the Japanese incarceration until 1986 when I saw a photography exhibit in San Francisco. I went to two of the best schools back East but it had never even been mentioned. I was shocked and horrified. And I only learned about it then by chance.

Yay history nerds, scholars and people doing public history to find all the names! Document all of the events that some want us to forget!

Here's another huge waste of (presumably) taxpayer money.,
 
This is beautiful and long overdue.
 
 
No existe una lista completa de laspersonas japonesas encarceladas en EEUU durante la 2nda Guerra Mundial.

Entonces un equipo de académicos y voluntarios examinó decenas de miles de documentos históricos para recopilar todos los nombres, una forma de devolverles sus identidades.
 
Of interest to some students in #hst471 - even if our focus is on China.

This is essential work. History matters. Remembering the dispossessed matters. Documenting state sanctioned racism matters. We can’t run from our nation’s past.
