On Saturday, August 6, 2011 the names on the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial wall were officially dedicated.  The 276 foot stone and cedar wall, one foot for every Japanese American living on Bainbridge Island at the start of World War II, will commemorate and honor the strength and perseverance of the people involved — both those exiled and their island neighbors — and brings awareness of the powerful capacity of human beings and a nation to heal, forgive and care for one another.
