Thoughts on redress

Encountering racial discrimination at a public swimming pool Loss of happy-go-lucky adolescence in Puyallup Assembly Center Memories of dusty conditions at Minidoka incarceration camp Making the decision to resist the draft Thoughts on redress Starting over after the war: denial of all things Japanese Have compassion for all of humanity Thoughts on post-9/11 atmosphere: what it means to be American

Transcripts available in the following languages:

It's no different from the reparation. That money that's sent to us, does that remedy everything that was done? Can you imagine the Jews saying, in Germany, saying, Oh, they're going to give us $20,000 so now that's all right, what the Germans did to them. No. It's wrong, and it should never be done again. And it's the same with the evacuation of Japanese; it should never be done again.
