Seventy years ago this month, the U.S. government forcibly relocated Japanese Americans across the West Coast to internment camps. Now, a new exhibit on the second floor of Doheny Memorial Library remembers the Japanese American internment through rare books, photographs, and other items culled from the USC Libraries' Special Collections. Curated by Dace Taube, 70th Anniversary of the internment of Japanese-Americans March 1942 also includes a set of pamphlets recently discovered at the Grand Avenue Library by Andreas Zachrau. 

Scroll down for photos of the exhibit, and stop by Special Collections display case in Doheny Library soon to see it for yourself.
