After Pearl Harbor, 120,000 Japanese-Americans — two thirds of whom were citizens — were held in 10 so-called "relocation camps" until the end of World War II. During internment, they produced a variety of objects, 450 of which were collected but never exhibited. We hear about them from Greg Kimura, president and CEO of the Japanese-American National Museum here in Los Angeles.
