National Japanese American Memorial Foundation celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the Dedication of the Japanese American Memorial to Patriotism During World War II

10th Anniversary Gala Celebration

Living History. Our Story. Your Rights. Breaking the Code.

Code breaking—a fitting theme for the Memorial’s 10th anniversary year. Breaking codes of those who would attack the United States. Breaking codes of injustice. Breaking codes of neglect by ensuring that history does not crumble into abstractions. Breaking codes of silence so that stories of people, places and events are well-remembered.
