beyond generations | Podcast on Japanese American Incarceration during WWII

December 11, 2022


New! Episode 3: Nikkei Student Mural “Respect Beloved Community” will go live on Sunday, December 11!

In this episode of “beyond generations,” you will hear two stories around a Japanese American student mural that you can find near the University of Washington campus. One, about a student in the mural photo who went to the incarceration camp and to the European theater to fight for America during WWII, and taught his post-war born son to be as American as he can be. The other, about an artist who uses public art as a means to bring people’s attention to injustice that Japanese American people experienced during WWII, including her own family.

“beyond generations” is a three-episode podcast mini-series produced and hosted by Japanese international student Monica. In each episode, Monica sits down with key figures in the story of the incarceration. They include Jan Johnson, the owner of the Panama Hotel, where you can see first-hand the belongings of Japanese Americans left before they were sent to the camps, Theresa Mudrock, a history librarian at the University of Washington, and Erin Shigaki, an artist and activist. They talk about what Japanese American incarceration during World War II means to them and how they have been working to connect this part of American history to the future.
