Located adjacent to the U.S. Capitol Building, this beautifully landscaped memorial was built to commemorate the civil injustices endured by the Japanese-American community during the Second World War as well as to honor those who served and fought with dignity for their adoptive country. The spiral design features dimensional granite that engulfs the space upon which is inscribed the names of all Japanese-Americans that died during World War II. There is also a reflection pool and several sculptures which further evoke the powerful emotions befitting of its subject.
