“The Presidio Trust today announced the opening of Exclusion: The Presidio’s Role in World War II Japanese American Incarceration running Saturday, April 1, 2017 – March 2018 at the Presidio Officers’ Club Heritage Gallery 50 Moraga Avenue, San Francisco.
As headquarters of the Western Defense Command, the Presidio district was the source of 108 civilian exclusion orders and other military directives that enacted President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Executive Order 9066. Together, these actions forced Japanese Americans from their homes along the West Coast and incarcerated them in concentration camps for the duration of the war. This special exhibition explores the Presidio’s significance in those historic times.”
