On Tuesday, February 21, 2006 at 7 pm, the UC Berkeley Nikkei Student Union will hold its annual Day of Remembrance event. The Nikkei Student Union, also known as NSU, was founded four years ago as a student organization dedicated to increasing awareness of Japanese American issues, as well as promoting dialogue between students of Japanese ancestry and those interested in Japanese American culture.

The Day of Remembrance is an annual recognition of President Roosevelt's signing of Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, which authorized the unconstitutional internment of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II. The event highlights the injustice imposed upon Japanese Americans as a result of racial discrimination.

Please support our community and our JA heritage by making February 21st an event for your children, family, and friends. The event will be held at 7 pm in the Heller Lounge (located in the MLK Student Union Building on the UC Berkeley campus) and is free to the public. Two short films will be shown, both of which involve the themes of loyalty and friendship between individuals from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. "Stand Up For Justice," a film by Visual Communications and the Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress, is a true story revolving around a teenager named Ralph Lazo, who willfully accompanies his Japanese American friends to the Manzanar internment camp. The other film, "Stranded," is a thought-provoking production by USC graduate students. Two Japanese American GI's are in a dilemma as to what to do with a wounded German soldier they stumble across during a battle in WWII. The film depicts the human condition to which all ethnic groups can relate.

A speaker panel (consisting of the films' producers and educators) will be present to answer questions from the audience. We will conclude the event with a reception. Refreshments will be served.
