Your Weekly Constitutional: Densho

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL)- You’ve heard of the Shoah foundations, haven’t you?

They are organizations designed to record and preserve the memories of Holocaust survivors before those survivors pass away.

There’s a similar project underway for survivors of America’s concentrations camps, where over a hundred thousand Americans of Japanese ancestry were incarcerated during World War II.

It’s called Densho, and one of its founders, Tom Ikeda, tells us all about it.

Catch ‘Your Weekly Constitutional’ with Stewart Harris on WETS-FM, 89.5, Sundays at 3pm and Tuesdays at 8pm.
