Event Details

Zoom link:

After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, all Japanese Americans living on the West Coast were forced from their homes and into incarceration camps in remote areas of the country. Among the over 120,000 Japanese Americans who were incarcerated, over two-thirds were American-born, many of whom were children. Historian and librarian Sarah Okner, a descendant of internees, shares photos and details of daily life in an internment camp, and the profound effects it had on those living there. This is a virtual program. Zoom link will be available to those registered and on this event page.
