Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience

May 4 @ 10:30 am 3:00 pm MDT

Join us at the Idaho State Museum to celebrate the grand opening of our newest exhibit, Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience. Festivities begin at 10:30 AM and include the musical drumming talents of Sangha Taiko, crafts for all ages, and a roundtable discussion with content experts! Presented by the Go For Broke National Education Center, Courage and Compassion explores stories of Japanese American life during WWII. Following the attacks on Pearl Harbor, the lives of Japanese Americans across the U.S. changed forever. Those living on the West Coast faced removal and incarceration, while many living in inland states found themselves the target of anti-Japanese sentiment. Discover stories of bravery and community in Idaho and across the nation with exclusive content co-developed with guest curators and local partners. Discounted museum admission all day! $5.00 for ages 6+. Ages 5 and under are free. For more information, visit history.idaho.gov/events
