September 16, 2023 - Fredericksburg, TX

The Admiral Nimitz Foundation is excited to welcome you back to this year’s Annual Symposium. The focus this year will be on Japan's occupation of Asia. Entitled “Occupation: The Legacy of the Asiatic Pacific War” we will explore the nuanced ramifications of the Japanese occupation. We hope that you will join us either in person or virtually on Saturday, September 16th to experience the opportunity of sharing information, insights, and questions. The event will be held in the National Museum of the Pacific War's Historic Nimitz Ballroom at 340 E. Main Street, Fredericksburg, Texas.


All who have a general to professional interest in the periods around World War II in the Pacific. We especially recommend this symposium to educators, historians, and members of organizations that study these periods.


The 2023 symposium will be held in person. In-person sessions will be live-streamed for online attendees, who can also participate in live Q&A.
