The Japanese American National Museum marks the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on Feb. 19, 1942, which led to the mass incarceration of 120,000 Japanese-Americans living on the West Coast during WWII. The exhibit features (through May 21 only) two pages of the original document on loan from the National Archives, as well as the Presidential Proclamation 2537 signed on Jan. 14, 1942 that required aliens from Germany, Italy and Japan to register with the U.S. Department of Justice. The display also includes additional historical documents, documentary videos and contemporary artwork by Wendy Maruyama and Mike Saijo. Throughout the exhibit the museum will host tours, workshops, performances and an outdoor art piece.
