“Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience” chronicles the stories of Japanese Americans during and immediately after WWII, and highlights stories of bravery, integrity, and extraordinary support of Japanese Americans from the Chicago area. Through the use of images, audio and interactive elements, Courage and Compassion provides a 360-degree perspective of the WWII experience of Americans of Japanese ancestry while exploring its relevance today.

On Saturday, March 2nd, from 1-3pm, please join us for the opening reception for the exhibit at the Trickster Gallery in Schaumburg. At this special reception, Mitch Maki, President and CEO of the Go For Broke National Educational Center will be present to open the exhibit. In addition, Professor Duncan Williams of the University of Southern California will be present to give a presentation as part of the opening reception.

“Courage and Compassion” will be on view at the Trickster Gallery at 190 South Roselle Road, Schaumburg from March 2nd, 2019 through May 4th, 2019.

Funded in part by a grant from the National Park Service and American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Courage and Compassion is made possible through a collaboration between Go For Broke National Education Center, Chicago Japanese American Historical Society, Japanese American Service Committee, Chicago Japanese American Citizens League, and the Trickster Gallery.
