A Forgotten History

Japanese-American Prison Camps of World War II


When remembering World War II, people often forget about the Japanese-American prison camps that were created in the US after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. An important part of our country's history often goes unseen and unremembered. On Friday, Nov. 20, hear a firsthand account of what it was like to live in these camps.

Sam Mihara will talk about his time in a camp in Wyoming. In addition to his story there will be readings of other men's experiences in prisons here in New Mexico. Following the readings there will be a Q&A session. The trip down history lane takes place from 11:30am-1pm. Main Library • Fri Nov 20 • 11:30am • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
