Coming Home

Memories of Japanese American Resettlement

About this Exhibition

Though the end of the war brought “freedom” from the confines of America’s concentration camps, Japanese Americans came home to face obstacles in housing, employment, and discrimination.

In addition to outlining some of the varied challenges facing Japanese American resettlers, this exhibit will explore the process of rebuilding community as well as the individual struggle to come to terms with the larger “camp” experience.

The exhibition will focus on five collections, each displayed in intimate settings, that reflect the process of coming home.
