Day of Remembrance - Los Angeles
"Behind Barbed Wire: Keeping Children Safe and Families Together"
100 N. Central Ave
Cost: FREE
Time: 2pm-4pm

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which led to the exclusion and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. Families of Japanese ancestry were removed from the West Coast based solely on their nation of origin and veiled under the guise of national security. While behind barbed wire, keeping the family together and safe was of utmost importance to the incarcerees.

Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience will be on view at the Trickster Gallery at 190 South Roselle Road, Schaumburg, IL from March 2nd to May 4th.
