"Soldiers of Conscience: Japanese American Military Resisters in World War II"
Thursday, October 23, 5-7 p.m.
UCLA - Charles E. Young Research Library

Shirley Castelnuovo, professor emeritus of political science at Northeastern Illinois University and adjunct professor of social and behavioral science at Saddleback College, will talk about her recently published book revealing the largely unknown story of some two hundred Japanese Americans who were drafted into the Army during World War II but refused to serve in combat while their families were kept in internment camps. Castelnuovo also follows the resisters into the post-war years and assesses the consequences of their actions on their lives and within the broader context of the Japanese American community.

The talk will take place in the Research Library Presentation Room, room 11348. Admission is free, and seating is on a first-come basis; parking is $8. The event is organized by the UCLA Library and the Department of Asian American Studies.
