12:00p.m. - 2:20p.m.


EVENT UPDATE
As of December 27, 2021

With the rapidly increasing COVID-19 infection rates in Los Angeles County due to the Omicron variant, the Japanese American National Museum will temporarily close to the public effective immediately. The safety of our community is of paramount importance to us, as is our obligation as a public institution to do our part to support efforts to inhibit the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We will continue to monitor public health guidelines and reassess as the situation unfolds.

In this immersive experience, get transported back to the 1940s with actor Kurt Sanchez Kanazawa, the voice of Stanley Hayami in A Life in Pieces, as he reads aloud from the letters and diaries of Stanley. Diary entries and letters will be selected from his time during the winter holidays in the Heart Mountain concentration camp and the 442nd Regimental Combat Team.

A recording of this performance will be available on Saturday, January 8th, on JANM's Youtube channel.
