After Pearl Harbor

Until 1942, the vibrant Japanese-Canadian neighbourhood on the south side of False Creek revolved around a Methodist church and school, now gone, at 6th and Columbia in Vancouver. The Uno family‚Äôs nearby confectionary store at 4th and Alberta had long served local residents with basic needs. On the night of January 16, 1942 a tragic crime with racist undertones shattered the community. In the months that followed, families were broken apart and the entire neighbourhood came to be erased. In the 75th year of the tragedy, rediscover the lost story--and neighbourhood--on this walking tour led by Janet Nicol, a long-time high school history teacher and author of a BC History article, "After Pearl Harbor".   For this workshop, we will meet at 4th and Alberta (the scene of the crime) in Vancouver.  The walk will take about one hour and is followed by discussion, tea, and light lunch at Q Shi Q Japanese restaurant. (included) A complimentary copy of "After Pearl Harbour" will also be provided.
