On November 24th, 2018, Oregon Buddhist Temple was very fortunate and honored to have been one of the sponsors for the event, "Kodomo no tameni"; a retelling of Japanese American history by George Nakata. The seats inside the Hondo were all filled up, showing that many people are interested to know what Japanese Americans went through during WW II.
We were very grateful and honored to be part of this meaningful event, Kodomo no Tameni: For the Sake of Our Children.
Thank you very much to Mr. George Nakata, for sharing your story and insights. Thank you also for your permission to let us record your talk; now, we can share it with future generations.
Thank you to Ms. Jean Matsumoto, for organizing this.
And thank you to our co-sponsors, Oregon Nikkei Endowment and Portland Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League.
