It is the mission of the SDPHS to create programs that inspire youth and adults to learn and document the history of the beginning of WWII and the days that followed from people who experienced it and from their ancestors.

Our programs help youth and adults to expand their skills in journalism pertaining to the history of WWII and the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. Our programs teach about events leading up to and following the “Day of Infamy” through documentation and films recorded by military survivors, child survivors, and descendants of survivors.
