Description

Sakamoto continues talking about his time in High School, growing up with very few Japanese Americans and taking an interest in astronomy and gymnastics. Next, he talks about his whereabouts during the attacks on Pearl Harbor, not believing it at first because of Orson Welles "The War of the Worlds" radio show. They would get evacuated soon after, heading to Pomona Assembly Center where privacy was not there at all. He talks about the process of moving out of his home and having to sell his new Ford, and then going to a place where they were stuck behind barbed wire. After this, they would be moved to Heart Mountain concentration camp in Wyoming.
