Writing Wrongs: Japanese Canadian Protest Letters of the 1940s

Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre 2021

During the 1940s, the Canadian government seized and sold the property of Japanese Canadians without their consent. Based on a collection of more than 300 letters protesting this injustice, Writing Wrongs brings to life the story of Japanese-Canadian internment and dispossession during the Second World War, along with a powerful and moving exploration of citizenship, justice and equal rights.
