Book News Annotation:

Ishizuka is a third-generation Japanese American; formerly with the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles for 15 years, she is now an independent writer and documentary producer. She presents a text based on "America's Concentration Camps: Remembering the Japanese American Experience," a touring exhibit produced by the Japanese American National Museum which traveled from Los Angeles to New York, Atlanta, San Francisco, and Little Rock between 1994 and 2004. The text tells the life history of the exhibition from its conception and the development of its exhibition strategy and design, to its manifestation as a venue for bringing history alive and fostering the processes of revelation that unfolded as former internees and visitors confronted the experience of the camps. Illustrated in b&w. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Combining heartfelt stories with first-rate scholarship, Lost and Found reveals the complexities of a people reclaiming their own history. For decades, victims of the United States' mass incarceration of Americans of Japanese descent during World War II were kept from understanding their experience by governmental coverups, euphemisms, and societal silence. Indeed the world as a whole knew little or nothing about this shamefully un-American event. The Japanese American National Museum mounted a critically acclaimed exhibition, "America's Concentration Camp: Remembering the Japanese American Experience," with the twin goals of educating the general public and engaging former inmates in coming to grips with and telling their own history.

 

Author/curator Karen L. Ishizuka, a third generation Japanese American, deftly blends official history with community memory to frame the historical moment of recovery within its cultural legacy. Detailing the interactive strategy that invited visitors to become part of this groundbreaking exhibition, Ishizuka narrates the processes of revelation and reclamation that unfolded as former internees and visitors alike confronted the experience of the camps. She also ponders how the dual act of recovering--and recovering from--history necessitates private and public mediation between remembering and forgetting, speaking out and remaining silent.

 

By embedding personal words and images within a framework of public narrative, Lost and Found works toward reclaiming a painful past and provides new insights with richness and depth.
