[Audio] Looking Like the Enemy: A Childhood View

With the passing of the first-generation Issei, the second-generation Nisei—now in their seventies and eighties—and the third-generation Sansei remain the last surviving first-person voices from the Nikkei World War II experience. This interactive presentation shares first-person recollections about childhood in a concentration camp, in a free-zone inland community, or in Japan.
