Full program details.

"Patriotism" and "loyalty" were volatile issues in America's concentration camps during World War II and continue to be controversial topics today. The program will examine the response of Japanese Americans to the US government's test of loyalty (Questions 27 and 28) -- including responses from resistors -- and our responsibility to defend those whose constitutional rights are currently being denied.


Day of Remembrance is co-sponsored by Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress, Japanese American Citizens League/Pacific Southwest District, Japanese American Cultural and Community Center, and the Japanese American National Museum.
