A Call for Justice: Fighting for Japanese Canadian Redress (1977-1988)
January 15 to April 2, 2018
Free, nonticketed event
The internment and treatment of Japanese Canadians and Japanese nationals during the Second World War was a dark period in Canadian history. In 1988, following a 10-year struggle by the community, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney formally acknowledged the injustices Japanese Canadians suffered from 1942 to 1949.
A Call for Justice: Fighting for the Japanese Canadian Redress (1977-1988) is a travelling exhibition from the Nikkei National Museum and Cultural Centre that uses photographs, artifacts, poetry, personal statements, art and video to commemorate the 10-year struggle to achieve an apology for and acknowledgement of the treatment of Japanese Canadians.
