Grounded in research from Landscapes of Injustice – a 7 year multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, community engaged project, this exhibit explores the dispossession of Japanese Canadians in the 1940s. It illuminates the loss of home and the struggle for justice of one racially marginalized community. The story unfolds by following seven narrators. Learn about life for Japanese Canadians in Canada before war, the administration of their lives during and after war ends, and how legacies of dispossession continue to this day.

7年間にわたる学術研究、および複数の機関とコミュニティが関与した「ランドスケープ・オブ・インジャスティス」。このプロジェクトに基づいた展示は、1940年代の日系カナダ人の財産没収について調べています。また人種差別されたコミュニティが住居を失い、正義を求める葛藤を描きます。 物語は7名のナレーターにより展開され、 戦前の日系カナダ人の生活、戦時中および戦後のそれらの管理、そして没収の余波が今日までどのように続いているかを探ります。
