Join Sam Mihara to hear about his experience with Japanese Internment camps and this dark time in our history.

When Sam Mihara was 9 years old, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and the U.S. entered World War II. Shortly after, Sam and his family were forced from their San Francisco home by armed military guards and sent to the Heart Mountain prison camp in Wyoming. They would live crowded into a single 20 x 20 square foot room for the next 3 years.
