Additional Information

The College of Southern Idaho will be observing the Day of Remembrance on February 19 in the college’s Fine Arts Recital Hall at 7 pm.  The event is part of a national commemoration of the signing of Executive Order 9066 that forced the relocation of an estimated 120,000 Japanese Americans into temporary incarceration facilities across the United States, including the Hunt Relocation Camp in south Central Idaho, between the years 1942 and 1945.

Hosted by CSI historian, Dr. Russ Tremayne, the CSI Day of Remembrance event will include an examination of the order signed by President Franklin Roosevelt on February 19, 1942 that relocated citizens and legal residents of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast of the United States into one of 10 facilities, primarily in western states. The presentation will include historical images from Dr. Tremayne’s forthcoming book, Surviving Minidoka, and is a pre-event to the annual CSI Civil Liberties Symposium and Pilgrimage, scheduled at the college on June 20 -22, 2013, as well an informal discussion.

The CSI Day of Remembrance is a free event and is open to the public.  Phi Theta Kappa, CSI Honors Program, CSI Social Science Department, and the CSI Community Education Center are sponsoring the event.  Light refreshments will be served.
