OUT OF THE DESERT

Resilience and Memory in Japanese American Internment

Drawing from Sterling Library’s Manuscripts and Archives and the Beinecke Collection of Western Americana, this exhibition highlights Yale’s extensive collection of materials related to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Rich in internee correspondence, artwork, and literature, this exhibit underscores the importance of everyday creative production and alternative narratives of internment.
