A Principled Stand: The Story of Hirabayashi v. United States, a collection of memoirs by Gordon Hirabayashi, James Hirabayashi and Lane Ryo Hirabayashi was selected for the upcoming JAMsj Book Club meeting when it meets November 2, 1:00pm at the Museum.

Gordon Hirabayashi was convicted of violating a curfew at the outbreak of WWII.  His appeal of this conviction reached the U.S. Supreme Court and Hirabayashi stood firm. The rest of his story promises a lively discussion at the Book Club meeting.

For the first  time, the events of the  case are told in Gordon's own words. The result is a  compelling and intimate story that reveals what motivated him, how he endured, and how his ideals deepened as he fought discrimination and defended his beliefs.

"I never look at my case as just my own, or just as a Japanese- American case.  It is an American case, with principles that affect the fundamental human rights of all Americans."
                                                     -   Gordon   K.   Hirabayashi.

The book is available at the Museum Store.  Book Club meets the first Saturday,  every other month and is open to the public.  Questions? Contact Book Club facilitator Aggie Idemoto at (408)294-3138 or aggie@jamsj.org.
