Education

Most of the Nisei (second-generation Japanese Americans) who grew up on the West Coast lived in relatively small sections of the city and shared common experiences in the public schools as well as Japanese language schools. The World War II incarceration interrupted thousands of students' elementary, high school and university educations.
