LOS ANGELES — A new exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum in the Little Tokyo neighborhood pays homage to Japanese Americans incarcerated during WWII.
The Irei: National Monument for WWII Japanese American Incarceration contains several pieces including the Ireichō, a book of names. The Ireichō contains the names of over 125,000 people who were imprisoned.
The project has been directed by Duncan Ryūken Williams, director of the USC Shinso Ito Center. The book is on display at the Japanese American National Museum and visitors can stamp their own names and family member’s names. For more information, visit JANM.org
