Virtual Special Exhibition Opening: Courage and Compassion
|Date||Wed, Feb 23, 7:00pm - 8:00pm|
Join the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum for a program presented in conjunction with their current special exhibition, Courage and Compassion: The Japanese American World War II Experience, on view at the museum through June 12, 2022. Mitchell T. Maki, president and CEO of Go For Broke National Education Center, will discuss the Center’s work, the creation of this exhibition, and the incredible personal stories that inspired it.
Courage and Compassion chronicles the stories of Japanese Americans during and immediately after WWII, highlighting the U.S. government’s curtailing of their civil rights, the bravery of Japanese American soldiers who fought for the freedom of millions while being denied their own, and the integrity of Americans who stood up for their friends and neighbors.
Courage and Compassion was created by the Go For Broke National Education Center, which aims to educate and inspire through the virtue and valor of World War II American veterans of Japanese ancestry.
