The proverb "Nana korobi ya oki", ("Fall down seven times, get up eight") - like the beloved daruma doll - represents a Japanese appreciation for resiliency of spirit.


Three American women: Lucy Craft, Karen Kasmauski, and Kathryn Tolbert, grew up watching this resiliency in their mothers, and wanted to tell their stories.

Their mothers are Japanese "War Brides"; women who immigrated to the United States as wives of members of the American military, stationed in Japan after World War 2. While around 50,000 War Brides immigrated to the U.S. from Japan, we still know very little about them and their experiences.

On August 20th, we will screen their recent film Fall Seven Times, Get Up Eight , and Skype with director Lucy Craft.   Professor Stephen Murphy-Shigematsu of Stanford University will lead the discussion which may include some War Brides from our own community.

Free with admission to the museum (nonmembers, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free).

Seating is limited, Please email PublicPrograms@jamsj.org or call (408) 294 - 3138 to reserve a seat.
