Hallie Ford Museum of Art in #SalemOR Presents: The Legacy of Heart Mountain


The Legacy of Heart Mountain

Date & Time:
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 at 7:00 PM

The Legacy of Heart Mountain explores the legacy of incarcerating thousands of Japanese Americans at the Heart Mountain concentration camp in Wyoming during World War II. At the heart of the film are striking photographs taken between 1943-1945 from inside the Heart Mountain camp by George and Frank C. Hirahara.

While incarcerated at Heart Mountain, George and his son Frank – both avid photographers – captured images of camp life and special family milestones, such as engagement celebrations, weddings, and family portraits. The Hiraharas were part of a 1,000 person contingent from the Yakima Valley in Washington, who were sent to Heart Mountain.
