"Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit" Japanese American WWII Incarceration, Then & Now

Gambatte! Legacy of an Enduring Spirit

Sat, May 27, 2017 - Sat, October 28, 2017

View historic photographs of Japanese-Americans during WWII taken by War Relocation Authority photographers—including Dorothea Lange and Tom Parker —juxtaposed with contemporary portraits of the same individuals or their descendants from Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Paul Kitagaki Jr. This exhibit provides a visual exploration of the Japanese concept of gambatte, or to triumph over adversity, and chronicles the legacy of Japanese Americans who persevered over their incarceration during World War II through a display of past and present images from an often-overlooked chapter of U.S. history.

Available during regular open hours

FREE, site admission not included

The exhibit is supported by the National Parks Service, Tanforan Assembly Center Memorial Committee, Contra Costa Japanese American Citizens League, Asian Pacific Endowment of The Saint Paul Foundation, Twin Cities Japanese American Citizens League and the Joseph and Marie Winter Family Fund for Historic Fort Snelling.
