StoryCorps San Joaquin: Lifelong Friends Talk About Internment Camps, Racism

And now it's time for another segment of StoryCorps San Joaquin. As part of Valley Public Radio’s collaboration with the personal history project, we’re airing segments based on recorded conversations from February’s 2020 mobile tour in Fresno and Bakersfield. Today, as part of the Yonsei Memory Project, you’ll hear from lifelong friends, 94-year-old Gary Tsudama and 87-year-old Yutaka Yamamoto. They talk about the Japanese-American internment camps during World War II and how they adjusted to life afterward. Tsudama begins.

StoryCorps San Joaquin is sponsored by The Kharazi Foundation, Assemi Real Estate and Bitwise Industries:
