After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, both the Canadian and American governments forced the relocation of citizens of Japanese descent from the coastal regions. Nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans and 22,000 Japanese Canadians were affected. This compelling collection of photographs presents two views of internment and incarceration in the early 1940s. This program provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature of forced separation and uprooting and the effects that it has on its victims.
