Seattle, Washington hearings

Hearings were held by the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC) in Seattle, Washington, on September 9-11, 1981. Written testimonies were submitted by former camp inmates and others, and some individuals were chosen to testify in person before the Commission. The hearings were conducted in 20 cities across the nation, and in 1982 the CWRIC issued its report 'Personal Justice Denied.' Ultimately, the CWRIC recommended, among other things, $20,000 individual compensation to those incarcerated and a formal government apology.
