The Association for Learning and Preserving the History of WW2 in Asia (ALPHA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to building knowledge and understanding of WW2 in Asia through education. Our mission is to promote the learning and critical understanding of the history of WWII in Asia and the atrocities of war, to affirm the values of justice, peace and reconciliation from a humanity perspective. The Western Chapter is dedicated to pursuing ALPHA’s mission to secondary and post-secondary students in the London community. ALPHA aims to activate historical memory and dialogue, not to lay blame, but to promote reconciliation, healing, closure and cross-cultural understanding. We achieve this mission through education and advocacy initiatives along four directions: engaging educators and students, empowering youth, supporting research, and connecting with the community.
