Through April 19, 2020

During World War II over 16,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly removed from the west coast to Gila River Internment Camp, near Chandler, simply because they looked like the enemy. This poignant exhibit demonstrates how the Japanese value gaman, enduring the seemingly impossible with patience and dignity, guided these American citizens, through loss and incarceration in the Arizona desert.  See the photos, hear the stories, read the names of incarcerees, and view the community contributed paper cranes in this transformative exhibition.
