From Barbed Wire to Battlefields: Japanese American Experiences in WWII CURRENT EXHIBIT
From Barbed Wire to Battlefields:
Japanese American Experiences in WWII

March 15, 2014 – October 12, 2014


Would you dare to defend your nation while others like you, possibly even your own family, are confined behind barbed wire within that same nation for reasons of ancestry alone? More than 33,000 Japanese Americans did just that. A new special exhibit at The National WWII Museum will showcases some of their stories.

From Barbed Wire to Battlefields: Japanese American Experiences in WWII, on view in the Joe W. and D. D. Brown Foundation Special Exhibit Gallery, includes artifacts, oral histories and stark images depicting the hardships faced by those Americans of Japanese ancestry suspected of sympathizing with the enemy and discriminated against because of their heritage. The exhibit also honors the heroics of those Japanese Americans who overcame adversity and helped to secure American victory on the battlefields.
