In this special edition, we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the “Day of Remembrance,” the internment of Japanese American citizens in the United States, also known as Executive Order 9066 during World War II. We share the untold stories of Japanese Americans who were either interned themselves, or had family members who were forced to relocate into internment camps in the United States.
Reporter Ernabel Demillo hosts this special from the Noguchi Museum Exhibit “Self Interned, 1942: Noguchi in Poston War Relocation Center. She shares the stories behind the art of Isamu Noguchi.
