                                This remarkable collection brings together video oral histories of Japanese Americans students during World War II.

All told, there are eighteen oral histories here and visitors can learn about the lives of Gordon Sato, Frank Inami, and Rose Yamaguchi, among others. Visitors may especially be interested in learning about the students’ time in the relocation centers and internment camps scattered around the United States. All told, it’s a moving and thoughtful collection that will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in American history.
