Hasegawa, Aylen (10/6/2017)

Description

Aylen Hasegawa was born on February 19th, 1942; the same day that President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 allowing for the incarceration of Japanese Americans. He recalls what he's been told of his mother raising four infants in the Minidoka camp, the family's experiences in Rockford, and his own memories of growing up on Chicago's South Side. He reflects on the values of hard work and responsibility imparted by his parents, and shares his thoughts about the importance of contemporary efforts to preserve and teach about incarceration history.
