Yoshiko Kanazawa

In Her Words

The Story of Incarceration in Japanese Internment Camps during WWII

Saturday, September 28

2:00pm - 4:00pm



Yoshiko Kanazawa was incarcerated in government camps for almost three and one-half years during World War II.  After the war, her family returned to Pasadena, California, where she completed high school.  She received a Bachelor of Arts from UCLA and a Master of Education from the University of Illinois.  She was silent about the injustice for most of her life, but now feels she must speak up to ensure that the government will never repeat that tragic part of history.  For the past seven years, she has been serving as a docent at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose and giving talks at area schools and community organizations.  Yoshiko tells the story of her life while incarcerated in camps in Tulare, California, and Gila River, Arizona, and how those years affected her life.
