My Experiences in a Japanese American Internment Camp by Dr. Harald Y. Arai

As a response to the attack on Pearl Harbor, in early 1942 President Franklin signed Executive Order #9066, which called for the incarceration of the Japanese-American population residing in the west coast states. Over 120,000 people were placed in internment camps, including Harold Arai and his family.

Dr. Arai will discuss his experience in the camp, with a focus on the strength and perseverance exhibited by the detainees.

Reception: 6:30 pm reception/7 pm program
