James Tanaka (California)

I am attending the "Enduring Communities" as a panel member about life outside the relocation centers. I lived in Portland & was sent to the Portland Stockyard Assembly Center & Minidoka Relocation Center. My family left the Center in the spring of 1943 on a seasonal group leave to thin the sugar beets. Summer weeding. Fall harvesting & back to the Center. 1944 was a repeat, but out on an indefinite leave.
