Genro Kashiwa oral history interview, part 6 of 6, October 31, 2001
Genro Kashiwa talks more about fighting on the Gothic Line, which was the last major German defensive during the European Theater of World War II. When Germany finally surrendered, Genro was assigned to guard the German prisoners of war at Ghedi Air Base in Italy. After receiving the Silver Star for his service, he received enough points to return home to Hawaii. He, then, attended the University of Michigan and became a lawyer. He talks about the contributions of the Nisei soldiers and what their contributions did for future Japanese American generations. At the end of the clip, he shares a typed roster list of his platoon that he made and carried with him during the war.
