Voices of Nisei Veterans

A partnership between The Wing and the Nisei Veterans Committee Foundation

Oral history testimonies by Japanese American veterans from World War II speak vividly to a thriving Japantown before the War, the impact of the incarceration, volunteering for service while families remained imprisoned in camp, the realities of battle, and struggles with the return home from War.

These oral histories pair with permanent exhibitions at the Nisei Veterans Committee (NVC) Hall in Seattle's Chinatown-International District, and the traveling exhibition, "Nisei Veteran: Common Story, Common Bond."
