The Vanport Mosaic Festival 2017 closes tomorrow, May 29th. Please join us the final FREE screening of Lost City, Living Memories: Vanport oral histories at 6pm at Irvington Covenant Church. All NEW stories! We are particularly honored to be able to share Mr. Albert Oyama's oral history. Through his memories, we will learn about the experience of one of the thousands of Japanese American families who suffered under the great injustice at the hands of the government, evacuated to prison camps during WWII. The Oyama lost everything and rebuilt their life in Vanport, only to experience the most heartbreaking loss. Mrs. Izumi Oyama is one of the fifteen recorded victims of the 1948 flood.
