[Audio] The Tule Lake Segregation Center: Its History and Significance

In fall 1943, more than 10 percent of the unjustly confined Nikkei population was imprisoned in the maximum security Tule Lake Segregation Center, a consequence of their refusal to give unqualified affirmation to two so-called loyalty questions. This nonviolent protest, defined as disloyalty by the U.S. government, has been virtually erased from the Japanese American narrative for the past 70 years. Hear from three Nisei survivors who resisted their government’s demand to show unquestioned “patriotic” compliance in the face of being stripped of their rights, freedom, and dignity.
