This collection brings together interviews and personal experiences from the JACL-CCDC Japanese American Oral History collection, the Issei to Gosei oral history project, the Walter E. Pollock collection and the Japanese Americans in World War II collection, as well as a presentation given by Saburo and Marion Masada. This collection also links to two legacy collections featuring digitized newsletters from incarceration camps, photographs from the Japanese Americans in World War II and TOMO Foundation collections, as well as other digitized materials from those collections as well as the Violet de Cristoforo and Walter E. Pollock collections. These materials together showcase a wide variety of experiences of Japanese Americans from the 1920s through the present day, demonstrating how Alien Land Laws, the forced incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II and its impacts, and efforts by the Japanese American community after the war to petition for redress, educate Americans on what happened and prevent a similar event from ever occurring again have affected Japanese Americans through the generations.
