California Museum presents:

Uprooted! Japanese Americans During World War II

The California Museum’s longest running exhibit surveys a century of Japanese American history in California through the personal stories of formerly incarcerated Californians.

Although Japanese immigrants and their American-born children established businesses, built thriving communities and contributed to the state’s prosperity, they began to face hostility and discrimination following the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.
