Landscapes of Injustice

Restoring a stolen history

Family heirlooms once owned by one of the wealthiest Japanese Canadians and recently acquired by the Nikkei National Museum serve as a stark reminder of a national injustice. The collection will feature in the UVic-led Landscapes of Injustice project, culminating with a nation-wide exhibit in 2021.
