Living Voices: 'Within the Silence' 

The Morrison Center, Thursday, April 25

Following a recent screening of Karen Day's documentary Bamboo & Barbed Wire, another spotlight is about to shine on the internment camps across the west where thousands of Japanese-Americans were imprisoned during World War II. Within the Silence focuses in on a single Seattle family, the Yamadas, as its members fight to survive that perilous period of American history. As the performance unfolds with a combination of theater and film, the Yamadas are split up into various camps and Emiko Yamada, the teenage daughter, ends up in Idaho's Minidoka, near Jerome. After the production, Ken Mochizuki—the author, historian and journalist who wrote Within the Silence—will address the crowd.
