The Northern California Time of Remembrance committee (Florin, Lodi, Placer County, and Sacramento JACL chapters) announces exciting and inspiring events that commemorate the signing of Executive Order 9066, which suspended due process and resulted in the unjust incarceration of 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry into America’s concentration centers during World War II.
Time of Remembrance 2016
SACRAMENTO — “Untold Story: Internment of Japanese Americans in Hawaii” chronicles the World War II incarceration experience of Japanese Americans in Hawaii. Within hours of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor over 2,000 men and women of Japanese ancestry were arrested, detained and incarcerated in 17 confinement sites throughout Hawaii.
Why was there no forced removal of those of Japanese ancestry and what were the conditions for the Hawaiian population following and during World War II.
