Stories of Displacement

  • Japanese American National Museum (map)

In conjunction with "What We Carried: Fragments & Memories from Iraq & Syria," stories of displacement as experienced by a variety of communities will be shared. Perspectives will include those of recent Iraqi and Syrian refugees and Japanese Americans incarcerated during WWII. Additional issues at the forefront today, such as deportation and gentrification, will also be explored. Participants will discuss what they were able to bring, but also what they were forced to leave behind.
