Join us for a special performance of moments from the life of a Nikkei First World War veteran. 50 minute performance followed by talkback session with actor Kevin Takahide Lee** & Writer/Director Yvette Dudley-Neuman**.  Presented by the City of Surrey, Heritage Services.

Zennosuke Inouye was a prominent Surrey businessman, chauffeur, and veteran of World War I.  After the war, he purchased 80 acres of land in Strawberry Hills through the Soldier’s Settlement Board and built a pioneer homestead. He was President of the Surrey Berry Growers’ Association and a volunteer at the Japanese Language School. During World War II, he and his family endured the hardship of the internment camps and the repossession of his farmland, profitable business and home.  He wrote 80 letters to  government offices and ministers, fighting to regain his land. He is the only Japanese Canadian war veteran to have his land returned to him.
