Hearings

The Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC) was created on July 30, 1980, by an act of Congress. The CWRIC was formed mainly to investigate matters surrounding the incarceration and to recommend appropriate remedies. Hearings were conducted by the CWRIC in 20 cities across the nation beginning in 1981. Testimonies of former camp inmates given at these hearings -- along with exhaustive research -- provided the basis for the CWRIC report 'Personal Justice Denied.' These hearings were the turning point of the redress movement. Former opponents of redress were won over after the hearings. The often emotional testimony was also a catharsis for the Japanese American community, as many former incarceration camp survivors spoke of their experience in public for the first time.
