The National Japanese American Historical Society (NJAHS), founded in 1980 in San Francisco, is a non-profit membership supported organization dedicated to the collection, preservation, authentic interpretation, and sharing of historical information of the Japanese American experience for the diverse broader national community. NJAHS specializes in travelling exhibitions, publications, videos, interactive multimedia, military and camp collections, and educational programs.We publish our quarterly journal, Nikkei Heritage. In 1986, NJAHS changed its name from Go For Broke and expanded its purpose to tell the entire story of the Japanese American experience to a broader audience. NJAHS's exhibits have been presented through such institutions as the Smithsonian Institution, the National Baseball Hall of Fame, the Los Angeles County Museum, the Oakland Museum, and the Bishop Museum in Hawaii. Today, the Historical Society continues to be a vital resource for museums, publishing firms, and schools.
