Alaska Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League Invites you to join us in a Day of Remembrance
February 19, 2015 (Thursday)
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Anchorage Lutheran Church
1420 N Street
Day of Remembrance is a day to honor the 110,000 men, women and children of Japanese ancestry and the 876 Aleut men, women and children who were evacuated to internment camps during World War II. This was a very tragic period of our American history, not to be forgotten and never to be repeated.
Alice Petrivelli, an Aleut at age 12, was taken to Funter Bay in Southeast Alaska and Yosh Nakagawa, a Japanese American at age 11, was taken to Minidoka Idaho relocation camp. They will share their experiences of being evacuated from their homes and spending time in government relocation camps during World War II.
