In the spring of 1942, roughly 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry were forced from their homes and sent to one of 10 "relocation centers" in the U.S. Some two-thirds of the internees were American citizens.
As the United States observes the 75th anniversary of Franklin D. Roosevelt's executive order authorizing the Japanese American incarceration, APM Reports is producing an eight-episode podcast telling the stories of Japanese Americans who lived through it.
