We visited the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles. We each created an origami box, spoke personally with Internment Camp survivors and each did a group presentation on what we learned. Rachel Kondo’s Family had purchased her a brick as one of the donor families in the past and we got to look for and find her brick to honor her Japanese American heritage. We learned a lot about the mistakes of the past and how to change the future so this type of injustice never occurs again.
