Densho is a Japanese term meaning “to pass on to the next generation,” or to leave a legacy. The legacy we offer is an American story with ongoing relevance: during World War II, the United States government incarcerated innocent people solely because of their ancestry.
Densho’s extensive digital collections chronicle the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans. Your donations allow us make our material free to everyone and to continue in the important work of preserving the stories of the past for the generations of tomorrow.
