Nisei Student Relocation Commemorative Fund " In 1980, nearly forty years after the wartime incarceration of the West Coast Japanese, a small group of New England Nisei established the Nisei Student Relocation Commemorative Fund (NSRCF). The Nisei ("second-generation," American-born descendants of Japanese immigrants) created the NSRCF to pay tribute to the National Japanese American Student Relocation Council (NJASRC), an organization of religious groups and educators that had helped the Nisei students leave the camps to continue their college educations during the difficult war years. The founders of the NSRCF resolved to commemorate both the evacuation and the generosity of people who reached across race differences and wartime hatred to offer a helping hand. "
