The Japanese American National Museum is a dynamic community-based institution that works in partnership with individuals, organizations, and diverse communities. Its programming reflects the Japanese American experience within the context of America’s diverse history, culture, and arts, and within the international context of Japanese who have migrated to other parts of the world. JANM is continually engaged in major projects that further its mission to promote understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity by sharing the Japanese American experience.

Remembrance Project

The Remembrance Project was an effort to build an online “living museum” featuring the stories of those whose lives were forever changed by the unconstitutional incarceration of more than 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry, most of whom were US citizens, during World War II. Though now closed to new participants, visitors can still explore the contributed tributes in an archived version of the original site.
