Yonsei review

With both my parents born in camps, Hila AZ and Colorado, and remembering what little was talked about when I was young from uncles, aunt's, great uncles, great aunt's, grandparents, etc; this gave me some insight to some empty spaces in their stories. I recall my great aunt telling me she remembers bring offered a penny for a crystal bowl and breaking it instead from disgust. This podcast made me upset and proud at the same time. My grandfather and several great uncles served in the 442nd. One great uncle told me that he was sent a shore to Japan after the war was over with several other 442nd in civilian clothes to listen for potential up risings in Japan. He said he didn't dare speak Japanese as his Japanese was from the old country and that if he spoke the Japanese they would know he was American. This was a time to never forget and never let happen again. Thank you for doing this.

Valuable & Rich Source of a Dark Time

For History Buffs & those that seek more understanding of a footnote in their history books. It also serves as a warning of America’s baser fears that manifest themselves in civil rights abuses.

Outstanding!

I’ve been researching this topic for over ten years and nothing can compare with impact of hearing the voices of the people who lived through this horrible time. This podcast is absolutely outstanding!
