Takeshi Yoshihara: A Quiet Struggle
Tuesday, April 22, 7:30 pm
For three years, Takeshi Yoshihara and his family lived in Japanese American
internment camps in Oregon and Idaho. In this conversation with Leslie Wilcox,
Takeshi illustrates what life was like in an internment camp; he says that
after a while, it became the "new normal" for him. After World War II
ended, Takeshi eventually became the first Japanese American admitted into the
U.S. Naval Academy.
