On March 13, 1942, Mrs. Kuni Wada was arrested at home by the FBI. She was arrested with several other Japanese Language School teachers that day. After spending a few days downtown in jail, she was transferred to the Terminal Island Federal Prison. She was held at Terminal Island prison with about 30 other Japanese women for several months until her Enemy Alien Board hearing. After her hearing, I guess my great grandmother, a lifelong Christian, Baptist Missionary, and wife of Rev. M Wada, was considered a danger. She was then sent to Seagoville Women’s Prison in Texas.   There was a concern that she read and wrote Japanese, English, German, and French which she had learned in missionary schools in Japan.
