44 Years Since the Termination of Executive Order 9066

This is a FREE speaker event open to the public wanting to learn more about American History about Exec Order 9066.

Returning to Utah State University we invite alumnus Yukio Shimomura to speak about his experience living through Executive Order 9066. The social injustice and inequality the Japanese people had to face during this time period. This event will make you think about similar events in our world and society.

With the intent to protect the U.S. from all espionage and sabotage from the Japanese, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive order 9066 on February 19, 1942.

Yukio Shimomura, born in San Francisco, California was in grade school when World War II started. His family and himself were incarcerated and interned to a camp in San Bruno, CA and later to the camp near Delta, Utah. Soon after they relocated to Ogden, UT where he graduated high school. Served in the U.S. Army, attended Weber State University and Utah State University where he earned a Bachelor Degree in Manufacturing Engineering.

Yukio will be share his experiences that happened to his family, before, during, and after the war in relevance to today's events.
