“Twice Heroes: America's Nisei Veterans of WWII and Korea” with Tom Graves
January 15, 2014 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
San Francisco writer and photographer Tom Graves spent a decade with the Nisei (Japanese American) soldiers of World War II and the Korean War, determined to share their unlikely story. That story is now being told in “Twice Heroes: America's Nisei Veterans of WWII and Korea.” At first denigrated and mistrusted, Nisei veterans - now in their 80s and 90s - earned the praise of a nation, and ultimately, a Congressional Gold Medal. The most decorated U.S. military unit in history, these are the same men and women who fought while their families were interned in bleak American prison camps during World War II, a black mark on America's promises of equality and liberty. Graves will autograph copies of his book following the program. This event is presented by the Japan America Society of Houston in conjunction with “American Heroes: Japanese American World War II Nisei Soldiers and The Congressional Gold Medal” on view through Sunday, Jan. 26, 2014, at Holocaust Museum Houston. The National Veterans Network has partnered with the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, and the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program to share this extraordinary story during an exclusive seven-city tour, ending at Holocaust Museum Houston. Admission is free, but seating is limited and advance registration is requested. Visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx to RSVP online.
