Life in a Japanese Internment Camp
6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 23
After the bombing of Pearl Harbor by Japan in December 1941, all Japanese-Americans living on the West Coast were forced from their homes and into relocation camps in remote areas of the country. Among the more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans who were incarcerated, over two-thirds were American-born, and many were children. Historian and librarian Sarah Okner, a descendant of internees, shares photos and details of daily life in an internment camp and the profound effects it had on those living there.
