Japanese-American Internment Camps In U.S. During World War Two To Be Focus Of Conejo Valley Event

Posted on Monday, October 24, 2011 10:54am

It’s considered to be a blotch on American history.  At the beginning of the nation’s involvement in World War II, more than 120,000 Japanese-Americans were rounded up by the U.S. Government, and sent to internment camps as a result of anti-Japanese war hysteria.  Some Ventura County residents among those sent to the camps will talk about their experiences at a public forum in Thousand Oaks on Wednesday (10/26) this week, as a part of the “Thousand Oaks Reads-One City, One Book” series.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco has one of those stories, and talks to Lily Sugiono of Thousand Oaks.
