Beyond the fight for recognition and redress from the U.S. government, Japanese Americans have also fought on a personal level and collectively to ensure that this dark period in American History is remembered so that future generations will have the opportunity to learn about this incarceration of American citizens. Redress resulted in each living former prisoner receiving $20,000.
