Go For Broke

National Education Center


“This exhibition is truly going to make a difference in the lives of all those who experience it.”

“This exhibition is a learning experience that will captivate, entertain, and shock both children and adults alike. The message expressed through various mediums is certainly relevant to more than just the Japanese American demographic, as the exhibition’s strength is in how it draws the links to injustices both historic and current. As you go through the exhibition, you will be asked questions that provoke you to reflect on what YOU would/can/will do or are doing in the face of injustice, and it is remarkably profound. Highly recommend for anyone and everyone!”

“My grandfather served in World War II. He would have loved this exhibition!”

“I learned so much from the exhibition! This exhibition is really a living history museum and that is so important, especially in today’s climate in which some people want to pretend that discrimination and racism are in the past.”

“I was very happy to show my son the exhibition and some of his heritage. I can’t wait to go back!”

“My friend and I were blown away by the exhibition. The tie-in with the present-day news stories was in my opinion a terrifically powerful component, and is something I think every history exhibition should feature. Thank you for helping to elevate the stories of these Japanese American men, women, and children whose story is widely silenced in public education these days. I hope to return to the exhibition again!”
