All That Remains

Winner - Gold

All That Remains focuses on the abiding interest in the arts and crafts made by Japanese Americans held in U.S. internment camps during World War II. The book features a sampling of things made in the camps, along with Hirasuna's essay on why these artifacts are still held dear. With the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of all Japanese Americans on the West Coast, we reflect on this dark chapter in American history and how the art created under the direst circumstances is truly a triumph of the human spirit.
