About this webinar

After Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941, thousands of Japanese and Japanese Americans were incarcerated in “Internment Camps.” German, Italians, and Latin Americans were also interned. The various sites of confinement and the records created will be examined, covering the period of time immediately preceding World War II through resettlement and redress.

    I didn’t realize our government also went after those in Latin America! I absolutely have to take a closer look at the records you mentioned for my Italian relatives that would have been in Latin America during that timeframe. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us!

    I am a Sansei (third generation) who has struggled with my Japanese identity all of my life. Little by little (having to deal with a shut-down reflex whenever the subject of incarceration comes up) I have summoned bits of courage to try harder to understand who my parents and grandparents (whom I never got to meet) were. I am so glad I registered for this webinar. It was kind of overwhelming but I feel like there’s work to be done that I can do (if I go at it in a way so as not to shut down). Thank you!

    I have listened to webinars whenever possible as I knew I could gleen information from each one. This webinar just proved to me that it is true & had it reinforced with Linda Okazaki stating the same thing. Thanks Linda
