I am choosing to continue my research on the WWII Japanese internment
camps for my final project in my Social and Cultural Factors class at
I am approaching it as a life centered issue through culture lost- how
assimilation led to cultural, familial, and social changes within the
Japanese American community.
I have chosen to focus on the Japanese Internment Memorial sculpture by
Ruth Asawa. Asawa's piece shows how culure lost can be remembered and
honored. Her panoramic view of life in the camps shows a detailed
account of the Japanese American internment experience from the first
immigration to the 1998 redress.
Through this lesson and life centered issue students could create a
memorial piece to honor a part culture lost.

Please email me if anyone knows of other Japanese Internment memorials
or where i can find more information on Ruth Asawa.
