Interview: Terry Janzen


Moving to Upland Post-Camp

One of the first things when we came out of the internment camp. The reason why we didn’t have too much trouble even though the city was trying to get rid of us. The chief of police had a farm next to us. He took us under his arm and made sure everything was okay. Mother did have a friend—his wife. And they were friends till Mother died or she got mad at her or something. I remember he took me and my brother to an air show in Upland. We got to sit in the front with the police chief and I met a movie star—Leo Carrillo. He used to play the Cisco Kid. [laughter] The police chief said, “You want him to take you guys home?” Yeah that’d be fine! So we got in his fancy car and he had this horn that made music. But things like that helped.
