Japanese-American Shares Experience of Internment Camps

Audio

Aired 4/19/09

Tom Fudge : After the attack on Pearl Harbor, fear of further Japanese attacks, and of Japanese subversion, gripped the West Coast of the U.S. And the people who immediately came under suspicion were Americans of Japanese descent. Eventually both alien and non-alien Japanese, to borrow the language of the government, were moved from their West Coast homes, and into government camps.

One of those relocated families was the family of Ben Segawa. Ben was a boy, living with a Japanese farming family in southern San Diego County.
