Description

Hashisaka discusses the war crimes trials that he was involved with, acting as a court interpreter. He brings a charge document from one of the defendants and talks about the intricacies of the trials. He would continue working at the trials until he was given the option to become a civilian interpreter or be discharged. He would choose discharge as he wanted to go to college on the GI Bill. He also talks about doing some family research in Japan and finding out that he had family members that were actually fighting in the war for Japan. Once discharged, he would attend the University of Hawaii and begin his career work in Hilo and then Kauai, meeting and marrying his wife along the way. The interview contains video of artifacts as a continuation of part 5 of this series.
