MEMORIAL TO THE WWII JAPANESE-AMERICAN INTERNEES
OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

The Empty Chair Committee has established a memorial to honor those Juneau Japanese who were forcibly removed during the war as well as to recognize the loyal Juneau friends who welcomed them home and helped them pick up their lives again. This project is sponsored by members of the Juneau High School Class of 1958 and their friends, with the support of the Juneau community.
