(Virtual) Raising the Flag: Coming of Age in WWII Concentration Camps

Selected date

Saturday March 4

Selected time

2:00 PM  –  3:30 PM

Join the Boy Scouts of Heart Mountain in an intergenerational conversation on coming of age in a World War II concentration camp. The event will highlight a short film by Yuka Murakami that captured a moment at the 2019 Heart Mountain Camp pilgrimage opening ceremony where 89-year-old Harumi “Bacon” Sakatani, who was a teenage internee and former Boy Scout during World War II, is adamant about raising the U.S. flag alongside his fellow Boy Scouts. This program will also be a Gathering of Eagles, providing an opportunity for the community of Boy Scouts to come together in community and conversation. 


This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Don’t Fence Me In.
