We first posted this video almost two years ago. It was filmed by the San Leandro Library as part of a series on the forced removal of Japanese and Japanese Americans to isolated camps in various parts of the United States during World War II. Alice’s quiet and poignant story of her family’s forced relocation from Juneau to Minidoka was shown at every presentation we gave and the power of her story is evidenced by the relatively short time it has taken us to establish a memorial which will be dedicated at Capital School Park on July 12th, 2014.
We’ve been asked to repost it, as it is so far down the feed there are people who have not seen it and may wish to do so. For those of you who have not heard Alice’s story, here it is again. Be ready to be touched by her rendition.
