Please join us for a very special free screening of the 2016 documentary Relocation, Arkansas: Aftermath of Incarceration as it chronicles the effect of the Japanese American incarceration experience.
The film chronicles the effect of the Japanese American incarceration experience in Arkansas during WWII on the generation that was born after the camps closed and the unlikely tale of those Japanese Americans who remained behind. The film features the story of Paul Takemoto, whose mother Alice Takemoto ’47, was incarcerated at a camp in Arkansas before coming to study at the Oberlin Conservatory in 1947. A panel discussion featuring Vivienne Schiffer, and Alice and Paul Takemoto will follow the screening. This performance is part of the month-long series of events organized in conjunction with the public history exhibit, Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience, in the Richard D. Baron ’64 Art Gallery, from February 17-March 18, 2018. Public viewing hours are from 10am to 5pm, Saturdays, and from 12-5pm, Sundays.
