LECTURE
Internment: The WWII Experience of Japanese Californians
presented by Lillian Kawasaki and Panelists

Perceived as a security threat, following the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941,California’s Japanese were collected, deprived of their property, and forced to live in heavily guarded camps created to contain them. Japanese-Americans born in the United States, naturalized citizens and recent immigrants alike survived this bitter experience, and were released only after the war. Many were then reunited with husbands, fathers and sons who, though also Japanese, spent those years proudly serving in the United States military. Ms. Kawasaki has been involved in the restoration of Manzanar National Historic Site, one of the Japanese relocation centers established in Owens Valley on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevadas. She will host a panel discussion on this subject, accompanied by several Japanese citizens who lived through these trying times.
