This horror story was all too true for the thousands of Japanese Americans alive during World War II. Almost overnight, thousands of proud Japanese Americans living on the west coast were forced to leave their homes and give up the life they knew.

I hate everything about this place.” Mrs. Sato reaction was what most people in the camp experience in the camp.
