In 1942, following President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order 9066, some 120,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast were moved into internment camps for the duration of the war. They were allowed to take only the possessions they could carry and were forced to abandon their businesses and personal property. The legacy of that experience is explored in If They Came For Me Today: The Japanese American Internment Project, a powerful living history exhibition documenting the experiences of Japanese American internees. This multimedia exhibition, developed by Community Works with students at George Washington, Balboa, and Horace Mann schools in San Francisco, honors those who were interned or impacted by the internment. Drawing on the oral histories of Japanese Americans who were themselves interned or whose parents were internees, the students worked to create a unique exhibition that simultaneously chronicles the experiences of one generation and the reactions of another.
