Let It Not Happen Again honors the 80th Anniversary of the forced removal of Japanese Americans from Bainbridge Island in 1942 after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. This installation in the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum lobby will feature a few materials and photographs from the Museum’s collection about the Exclusion period.
The recently restored original U.S. Army poster instructing Japanese Americans to leave the Island will be on view from March 24 – 30 only. Believed to be the only remaining original copy, the poster is an important and fragile artifact from this period of Island history.
Let It Not Happen Again opens Friday, March 11, 2022. The restored US Army poster will be on view from March 24 – March 30.
