Fujiyoshi, Jane (11/12/2017)

Jane Fujiyoshi is a third generation (Sansei) Japanese American who was born in California and incarcerated at Rohwer as an infant. She discusses her family's experiences leaving Rohwer to farm in Texas, where they lived for 19 years before eventually moving to Chicago. She recalls sharecropper life, the kindness of her Mexican American neighbors, and Japanese American community life in Texas. The Fujiyoshi family relocated to Chicago in the early 1960s, and Jane describes the challenges and excitement of establishing new lives in a major city.
