On Friday, Jan. 25, Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum will host a special educational symposium, “Internment in Times of War.”
Moderated by journalist Warren Peper, this educational program will begin at 10 a.m. in the USS Yorktown’s Smokey Stover Theater and will provide guests with an opportunity to learn about the challenges internees and prisoners of war faced - and ultimately overcame – during conflicts ranging from WWII and the Holocaust through Korea and Vietnam. The stories of the distinguished panel of speakers are sure to inspire and captivate – including the experiences of Japanese American Mary Murakami, who was forced to evacuate to an internment camp in the Arizona desert during orld War II.
