SAN DIEGO — The Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego will hold an open house on Monday, Feb. 18, from 5 to 7 p.m.
JAHSSD shares space with the San Diego History Center in the Casa de Balboa building in Balboa Park, 149 El Prado.
In addition to a tour of the facilities and refreshments, the reception will include a Day of Remembrance commemoration as Feb. 19 marks the 71st anniversary of Executive Order 9066.
Founded in 1992, JAHSSD recognizes the contributions Japanese Americans have made to the San Diego region by preserving artifacts, photographs, documents and written and oral histories and making them available to the public.
JAHSSD provides educational programs and resources to local schools and universities; presents exhibits and public programs; and participates in community forums and dialogues. With the annual Kansha Award, JAHSSD recognizes special individuals who have made significant contributions to the Nikkei community.
