On Feb. 19, 1942, Executive Order 9066 authorized the United States military to conduct a mandatory evacuation of Japanese Americans on the West Coast. In Washington state, nearly 13,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly removed from their homes and placed in incarceration camps for the duration of World War II.
Dr. Lisa Hoffman's and Dr. Mary Hanneman's newly published book, Becoming Nisei, shares stories of growing up in Japanese American Tacoma before the incarceration.
Organized by the Office of Intercultural Engagement.
