Original caption: San Francisco, California. Families of two Shinto priests who were interned on December 8, 1942, immediately upon declaration of war. The mother at right has nine American born children and has been in the United States ten years. The mother on the left has been in this country two years, and neither speak English. These evacuees and others will be leaving for the assembly center within a few days, and later transferred to War Relocation Authority centers for the duration.
