Mitsue Salador (pictured in the photo on the left) was attending nursing school when she was deported to the Portland Assembly Center in 1942. Madeline Sugimoto is in the photo on the right with her parents in front of their barracks at the Jerome Relocation Center, Arkansas, 1942. From 1942-1946, the United States military imprisoned 120,000 people of Japanese heritage; two-thirds of the interned were American citizens. About 60,000 of those “enemies” were children.

Seating is limited, RSVP is recommended. Suggested donation of $10 to attend. To RSVP contact Deborah Lom at (516) 571-8040 or dlom@hmtcli.org.
