Courtney Sato: “Out of the Desert”: Resilience and Memory in Japanese American Internment

Drawing from Sterling Library’s Manuscripts and Archives and the Beinecke Collection of Western Americana, this exhibition highlights Yale’s extensive collection of materials related to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.
