Regarded as “worse than camp” by many Nikkei, the immediate post-incarceration period is often overlooked in Japanese American history. The war had ended but returning families faced continued hostility and backlash coupled with very difficult housing and job markets.

Join JANM’s Collection Manager Kristen Hayashi and Densho Content Director Brian Niiya as they discuss aspects of this time period. Hayashi will talk about the unique situation of Japanese Americans in Los Angeles during the post-war years and Niiya will provide an overview of stories from throughout California based on Densho interviews with those who returned.

Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended here.

Presented in partnership with Densho.
