Another one of our finding aids is up on the Online Archive of California! This finding aid describes our collection of testimonies from the Commission on the Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC) Hearings held in 1981 in Los Angeles. In these hearings, former internees, community leaders, and others gave testimony about the impact that internment had on Japanese American individuals, families, and community as a whole. More detailed description, including interviewees and subjects covered, is on the finding aid.
Visual Communications, along with NCRR (Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress) produced a 12-volume set of the testimonies entitled “Stand Up for Justice.” Researchers can, however, view the footage in-house for no charge.
