Also Known As:
Steveston Nikkei Memorial
Description of Work:
This Nikkei Memorial marks the 75th anniversary of the forced removal of Steveston’s Japanese Canadian community in 1942, during World War II. More importantly, it celebrates the 70th anniversary of their return as members of a resilient community and honours their contributions in rebuilding Steveston.
As a third generation Japanese Canadian and landscape architect, Joseph Fry has a long and deep-seated interest in understanding the impact of the internment on his maternal grandparents. The design of the memorial seeks the intersection between culture and tradition, community and ethnicity, and private stories with public history.
