The Museum of History and Holocaust Education invites you to join us for a special reception in support of our newest exhibition, "The Tragedy of War." Following the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, 120,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly placed in confinement and stripped of their rights through Executive Order 9066. This exhibition explores the experiences of those confined and how the internment of Japanese Americans shaped principles of freedom and justice in the United States.

"Tragedy of War: Japanese American Internment" is curated by Kennesaw State Public History students under the direction of Dr. Julia Brock, Director of Interpretation at the Museum of History and Holocaust Education. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear special guest speakers and view the ten-panel exhibition. Refreshments will be served.

The reception will begin at 3:00 p.m. in the first floor atrium of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences Building (HSS). HSS is located on Kennesaw State University's main campus at the intersection of Campus Loop Road and Bartow Avenue.
