MARIETTA - This fall the Marietta History Center continues its series of traveling exhibits from Kennesaw State University’s Museum of History and Holocaust Education. The second temporary exhibit, in the series, will be “The Tragedy of War: Japanese American Internment.”

During World War II 120,000 ethnic Japanese on the west coast, two-thirds of them American citizens, were forced into a series of camps to live under armed guard. Japanese-American confinement was authorized by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and supported by Congress and the Supreme Court. Authorities feared that Japanese residents were disloyal and might aid in a Japanese invasion of the United States.

"The Tragedy of War" revisits the injustice of Japanese-American confinement by telling their stories and asking a question that resonates today: At what point should the rights of citizens be limited or denied to ensure our nation is secure? This second exhibit in the series will be on display at the MHC from Saturday, September 10th through Friday, October 7th.  For more information on this exhibit: https://historymuseum.kennesaw.edu/exhibitions/traveling/tragedy-of-war.php 

The last temporary exhibit in this fall series from KSU’s Museum of History and Holocaust Education will be “Voices from the Great War”. More information to follow. 

When: Saturday, September 10th – Friday, October 7th  

Where: Marietta History Center

1 Depot Street, Marietta, GA 30060

Cost: $7 Adults, $5 Senior / Student, FREE for Children under 5 and those with a Military ID All temporary exhibits are included with regular admission.
