[Audio] In My Parents' Words: Voices from Department of Justice Camps

Prohibited by law from becoming naturalized U.S. citizens, select Issei were the first to be confined in Department of Justice camps following Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. In addition, Nisei and Kibei who later renounced their American citizenship were removed to Department of Justice camps. Deemed enemy aliens, they were eventually deported to Japan. During this panel sons and daughters share their parents’ internment experiences through the written documents they left behind.
