This collection consists of interviews conducted by the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community (BIJAC). BIJAC's mission is to share with the wider community the history and culture of Japanese Americans, and to promote the safeguarding of civil and constitutional rights for all. Japanese Americans living on Bainbridge Island were the first of more than 120,000 forced to move from their homes on the West Coast during WWII. These interviews focus on life on Bainbridge Island before the war, during evacuation and internment, and after the war. Filming of these interviews was funded by grants from the Bainbridge Community Foundation, the Bainbridge Island Arts and Humanities Council, Humanities Washington, and the Washington State Office of the Superintendent for Public Instruction.
