With casualties in the Civil War reaching unfathomable numbers equalling about 2.5 percent of the entire population, the ways that both sides of the war grappled with death and dying changed drastically.

Japanese Internee Fathers, American Patriot Sons
New Mexico History Museum
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

During World War II, Santa Fe was the site of one of the nation’s largest Justice Department internment camps. It primarily housed Japanese immigrants, among them the Rev. Tamasaku Watanabe. On Sunday, November 15, at 2 pm, Watanabe’s granddaughter, Dr. Gail Okawa, speaks on a brain-twisting aspect of that heartbreaking period: Even as our government locked up Japanese residents over fears of their supposed disloyalty, their own children put on soldiers’ uniforms to defend the nation.

“Compounded Ironies: Japanese Internee Fathers, American Patriot Sons” is free with admission; Sunday free to NM residents.
