Education is the foundation of peace.

WHO WE ARE

ALPHA's mission is to foster awareness of an often overlooked aspect of World War II history, in the interest of furthering the values of justice, peace, and reconciliation, both for survivors of the past and for those who shape the historical narratives of the present and future.

In 2017 the ALPHA Education Board of Directors approved the significance of establishing a museum dedicated to giving voice to the victims and survivors of WWII in Asia, remembering the atrocities committed so that they are never repeated, and establishing a symbol of hope, peace, and humanity.

Connecting History to Contemporary Issues

Dr. Sachiyo Tsukamoto and Judge Julie Tang (Ret.) lead a conversation about the Politics of Memory and the continuing struggle of the "Comfort System" survivors for justice.
