Manzanar Committee member Joyce Okazaki, who, as a child, was one of over 110,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry who were imprisoned in American concentration camps during World War II (Okazaki, who was then Joyce Yuki Nakamura, is pictured at left in this famous photo by Ansel Adams taken at Manzanar), appeared on Valley Public Radio (KVPR-FM 89.3; National Public Radio in California’s Central Valley) in Fresno, California to speak of her experiences behind the barbed wire at Manzanar, located in Callifornia’s Owens Valley, just over the Eastern Sierras from Fresno.
