Hogan, Hannah (11/16/2017)

Description

Hannah Hogan is a second generation (Nisei) Japanese American. In this interview, she shares memories of her early life in Denver and Los Angeles and describes the atmosphere of tense anxiety in the Los Angeles Japanese American community after Pearl Harbor. She describes having to leave school when her family's financial assets were frozen, being fired from her job at the Department of Motor Vehicles, the FBI taking male community leaders into custody, and the rush to sell or store personal possessions. She also describes the difficult conditions she experienced at Santa Anita and Amache, her early departure to attend college in Kansas, and the death of her father from illness in camp. She recounts her family's reasons for resettling in Chicago and some of the housing, work, and educational experiences of the early resettlement period.
