Day of Remembrance: Japanese Americans Recall WWII Incarceration
by Text: R.R. Photos: Chris Cassell
Immigration issues of today parallel the Japanese American experience during WWII, when families were removed from their homes on the U.S. West Coast to distant locations and incarcerated. Racism was, and is, at the core of both. The 39th annual Day of Remembrance on February 17th featured reminiscence, music, and a march through historic San José Japantown that was also a protest of Trump's National Emergency, announced two days earlier.
