The 150 year history of the Japanese in America, like other immigrant groups, is one of triumph and tragedy.  It is the story of an immigrant group that helped to build America, and after suffering the indignities of forced removal and incarceration, rose to recoup their lives and rebuild their communities whose social structure had been destroyed during World War II.  In the process they came together and utilized the tools of democracy:  The courts, Congress, public hearings and grass roots campaigning to win

their long delayed justice and

mark their place in America.  It

is a legacy of the undaunted

courage  and indomitable spirit

of Americans that will pave the

way so that this tragedy will never

be repeated.
