CORRECTION Lecture: Lessons of the Japanese American exclusion

Honor wall at Minidoka internment camp lists names
of camp residents who volunteered to serve in the
US Military and fight in WWII

Reader Susan Prince has sent a correction to what was originally published:

The names on the wall are the names of the people in the camp who volunteered to serve in the US Military during the war and served with honor. Thousands of people stayed in this camp - way too many names to fit on the "Honor Roll" wall. Photo of the wall attached from a visit I made in 2017.

In March of 1942, 227 Japanese Americans were forcibly removed from their homes on Bainbridge Island by the U.S. Army. Starting with this small community, a national strategy began, with more than 120,000 Japanese American men, women and children forcibly removed and incarcerated during World War II. 

Clarence Moriwaki shares the story of Bainbridge Island— the origin point of the Japanese American exclusion— to provide a human, historical account of this national tragedy, and to ask the question: Are there parallels to what’s happening in America now?
