The Idaho State Museum is excited to be partnering with the Idaho Humanities Council (IHC) to bring their Human Ties: Conversations That Matter program to Museum on Saturday, June 22nd at 1PM. The IHC’s program brings communities together to have respectful and civil conversations about challenging topics that are meaningful to Idaho. This conversation compliments the Museum’s newest exhibit from Go For Broke National Education Center, Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience.

Using historical primary sources as the center of the conversation, join an IHC trained facilitator to discuss themes of incarceration, patriotism, and empathy. From upstanders to resisters, from heroes that rose to the call of military service and those that served as civilian allies, Courage and Compassion highlights the bravery, integrity and extraordinary support of Japanese Americans within communities across the country during the turbulent time of World War II.

This event is free to the public. Pre-registration is required, expertise is not.

Participants will receive complimentary access to Courage and Compassion: Our Shared Story of the Japanese American World War II Experience.
