April 20th, 1pm – 4pm

The New Mexico Japanese American Citizens League (NMJACL), in partnership with the New Mexico History Museum, presents a symposium on the Santa Fe Internment Camp and its historical Marker. The program includes: 1) screening of the documentary film “Community in Conflict,” followed by an audience talkback with the director, Claudia Katayanagi; 2) dramatizations by the readers theater group, JACL Players, of stories from inside and outside the barbed wire of the Santa Fe Internment Camp and the opposition to the creation of a memorial to the camp more than 50 years later; and 3) panel discussion on New Mexico’s efforts to preserve the legacy of Japanese American incarceration. Panelists include members of the 1999 Santa Fe Internment Camp Marker committee, the daughter of a Bataan Death March survivor, and city councilors present at the vote on the Marker. They explore both sides of the controversial Marker issue and parallels to current times.
