On February 17, the Chicago History Museum will mark the anniversary of FDR’s authorization to forcibly relocate Japanese-American citizens to internment camps during the Second World War. The memorial program is supported by Chicago-area Japanese American cultural and civil society organizations, including the Chicago Japanese American Council, the Chicago Japanese American Historical Society, the Chicago Chapter of the Japanese American Citizen League, the Japanese American Service Committee, and the Japanese Mutual Aid Society of Chicago, and is intended to call to mind the gross injustices that our society has perpetrated in times of fear and uncertainty.
The event itself is a free program at the Chicago History Museum, though regular admission fees may still apply.
