Witness to Wartime Exhibit Opens

The High Desert Museum invites you to explore the experience of Japanese-Americans during World War II through the art of their new exhibit — Witness to Wartime: The Painted Diary of Takuichi Fujii.  It opens Oct. 19.  The exhibit has been called “the most remarkable document created by a Japanese-American prisoner during the wartime” by distinguished historian Roger Daniels, Charles Phelps Taft Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Cincinnati.

“This will be the first time the exhibit has been viewed in Oregon,” said Museum Executive Director Dana Whitelaw, Ph.D. “We are honored to show this important work, help tell the story of the Fujii family, and reflect on and learn from this part of American history.”
