It is important that this story is always told and remembered so that we do not let it happen again. And sometimes, when I see today how the children of immigrants are treated by being separated from their families, I conclude that the past must serve as a guide so that the error of the past does not happen again.
Sanjana Chetia (she/they)
42:41
thank you for sharing these pictures Amber, they’re really moving
Susan Hayase & Tom Izu
44:08
So wonderful that Amber's family saved these valuable photos! Many Japanese American families burned their photos and belongings fearing that the U.S. government would use them against them.
Monique Oliveira

Brandi
48:42
Did I hear earlier correctly that there is only three Japantowns in the United States which are all in in SJ, SF, and Los Angeles? Why not in other states?
Susan Hayase & Tom Izu
49:54
The majority of Japanese Americans were in Hawaii or in the west coast states -- Washington, Oregon, California. There used to be many Jtowns in the west coast states.
Brandi
50:24
Thanks for the explanation.
Angélica, she/her/ella
50:45
I can’t imagine being a child and being forced to be separated from my family. This is a human rights violation
Angélica, she/her/ella
51:39
There are only a few family detention centers where they can stay together.
Susan Hayase & Tom Izu
52:21
Even a brief separation can seriously harm children, but many have been separated for extended times.
Brandi
54:15
Hasn’t other administrations also separated children from their parents? In other words, hasn’t this been going on for a long time?
Cynthia Kaufman
55:10
generally people who apply to be refugees are allowed into the US to wait while their case is processed.this was very unusual
Angélica, she/her/ella
56:22
HEFAS will be doing a mutual aid fundraiser to collects supplies to be sent to chidden camps at the border and to farmworkers. More info to come.
