Sense of Place March 15, 2017, A Sense of Honor: How Community Members Supported Japanese Americans during World War II, Linda Tamura
Feb, 2017 Although Hood River garnered national notoriety for anti-Japanese American sentiments during World War II, it's noteworthy that a small number of local citizens stepped forward on behalf of their neighbors. In individual acts of support for Japanese Americans and - in some cases - as members of the League for Liberty and Justice, they demonstrated courage and a respect for civil rights. Join Gorge Owned for this Sense of Place program as we welcome Linda Tamura to reflect on incidents of that time and place. She will be joined by community members who will recall stories of their families' acts during and leading up to the Internment. We will reflect on the past while also recognizing lessons for our community's future. Tamura will summarize the immigration, wartime incarceration, and return to the valley of local Japanese Americans. Integrated throughout will be remembrances of locals about their own family members. We also plan to invite and recognize family members of affected individuals during the program. This program will be appropriate for youth as well as adults. Tamura is Professor Emerita, Willamette University and author of two books about her hometown, Nisei Soldiers Break Their Silence: Coming Home to Hood River (University of Washington Press, 2013) and Hood River Issei: An Oral History of Japanese Settlers in Oregon's Hood River Valley (University of Illinois Press, 1994). She also co-curated "What If Heroes Were Not Welcome Home? an exhibit, now traveling, through the Oregon Historical Society. Tamura will speak on Wednesday, March 15, at Columbia Center for the Arts.
