The Japanese American Military Digital History Collective (JAMHC) is generously funded by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) under the hidden collections grant as "Segregated Japanese American Military Units of World War II: A Collaborative Online Repository of Oral Histories, Photos and Documents."

About the Database

The JAMHC is a cooperative partnership of the Japanese American Service Committee, Military Intelligence Service Veterans Club of Hawaii, Nisei Veterans Memorial Center, and Go For Broke National Education Center. Together we are improving access to cultural heritage organizations’ historical content including oral histories, documents and photographs about the Japanese American World War II veteran legacy. This project will continue to grow as a collaborative digital humanities effort.

Our Mission

The central purpose of the JAMCH is to assemble, digitize and make web-accessible historical documents and oral histories of the Japanese American military experience in World War II.
