San Jose State University To Honor Former Japanese American Students

Like other California State University and California Community College campuses, San Jose State University is searching for their former Japanese American students who were forced to leave the University due to their imprisonment in American concentration camps during World War II so they (or surviving family members) can be awarded an honorary degree from the University.

You can read more about their search (they need your help!) at: Nisei Diploma Project.
