Nisei female. Born May 6, 1925, in Sacramento, California. During World War II, sent with family to the Sacramento Assembly Center, California, and the Tule Lake concentration camp, California. Due to father's refusal to answer the so-called "loyalty questions" in 1943, the family remained in Tule Lake when it was turned into a segregation center. Subject to violent attacks and harassment, Kazie and her family were able to leave camp for Philadelphia in 1945.
