THIS SUNDAY:
Untold Stories: The Mass Imprisonment of Japanese Americans During World War II
Sunday, June 4 at 3:00 pm
 
 
As a nine-year-old during World War II, Sam Mihara was imprisoned with his family for three years at the Heart Mountain prison camp in rural Wyoming, watched over by armed guards. He now is a lecturer on mass imprisonment, one of the few survivors who speaks nationally about his experience. His multi-media presentation includes photographs, video clips and in-depth discussions about his experiences and the those of the 120,000 Japanese, mostly U.S. citizens, who were removed from their homes and placed into makeshift prison camps.
