Stories from Camps

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed and issued Executive Order 9066, changing the lives of tens of thousands of Japanese Americans forever. In the following months, approximately 110,000 people of Japanese Ancestry were instructed to gather their belongings and report to the Civil Control Station where they were then taken from the West Coast. These men, women, and children were brought to American Concentration Camps and stayed there for the duration of World War II. Join us to hear the Stories from Camps from family members of internees as well as those who experienced the Camps first hand.
