Memories of Five Nisei
Five second-generation Japanese Americans (Takashi Hoshizaki, Toshi Ito, Willie Ito, Sam Mihara, and Shig Yabu) will share significant memories of their lives, with a focus on the WWII camp experience. The presenters, who are all in their 80s and 90s, will also compare their experiences with present day detention centers in Texas for Central American refugees.
