Reshaping Memory, Owning HistoryNikkei National Museum
Through the Lens of Japanese Canadian Redress
The Canadian government’s acknowledgement of injustice and compensation on September 22, 1988 redressed this terrible wrong in Canada’s past. Layers of voices, drawn from documents of internment, newspapers, books, poetry, diaries, letters, and oral histories, together with poignant photographic images and memory-laden artifacts, speak to losses and absences, and of issues of community, identity, representation, and human rights. Text by Roy Miki, Yuko Shibata and Michiko Ayukawa.
