Fred Korematsu born in Oakland, CA 1/30/1919. An American of Japanese descent, his parents ran a floral business and he was a welder. After Pearl harbor Pres. Roosevelt enacted Executive Order 9066 in which Japanese Americans were commanded to internment camps. Mr. Korematsu refused to go. He first tried to hide and had plastic surgery to change his Asian features. He was caught. He and his lawyers wrote brief after a brief and finally got 9066 overturned. It was proven that there never had been a threat to any American by Japanese Americans. The United States government went so far as to hide their guilt that they burned documents. My soap embraces our struggles in our country and hopefully- like the beautiful art of kintsukuroi – the gold repair of Japanese pottery – the philosophy of such is the essence of resilience is shown in the piece through the beauty of its breaks. Through the beauty of its history of trials, the piece, like us, like our country will be better for it.
