George Takai Interview (You Tube)

He remembers the day when American soldiers ordered his family out of their home.

He says he was four-years-old at the time.

He notes there were no charges, no trials, no due process for those forced to evacuate.

He says when he would go to the latrine at night, search lights would follow him.

He says 'It was a concentration camp, pure and simple.'

He definitely has not forgotten how machine guns were pointed inward.

He says that, after he got out of the camp and started school again, he had a teacher that referred to him as 'that little Jap boy.'
