I am An American: Japanese Incarceration in Time of Fear Exhibition at Muzeo
Thursday, August 29, 2019
Anaheim Public Library presents the story of an amazing testament of courage and determination of its Japanese American pioneers and their descendants before and after WWII.
Anaheim High School was the center of North Orange County education for this community where they established businesses and a church prior to WWII.
Anaheim was attractive for these families to return and rebuild the City becoming a center for local Japanese American commerce and religion in Orange County. This 5,000 square foot exhibit will feature personal testimonials, artifacts, and memorabilia as well as give a first-hand look at Poston, Arizona incarceration camp experience which affected and devastated those in Anaheim and Orange County from 1942-1945.
