PROJECT DESCRIPTION

On November 1, 1941, Japanese American men were recruited into a clandestine language program designed to train them to be soldier linguists and translators for the United States as it rallied its forces against an advancing Japanese Empire.  Fiercely loyal, these men not only risked their lives, but did so as their very government imprisoned their families in internment camps. 
 
Now for the first time their devotion, acts of bravery, and dramatic stories were made available through an interactive touch exhibit conceived, designed, and developed by Array Interactive for the National Japanese American Historical Society’s museum in San Francisco, California.
