Legacy of the Nisei

Experience first-hand accounts of life in the World War II internment camps and of Nisei soldiers who fought for the United States while their families were interned in ten camps throughout the United States.

This composite film tells stories of love and marriage, the MIS and the segregated 100th/442nd Regimental Combat Team, resistance to the draft and the lives of young people caught up in the government action that followed the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Legacy of the Nisei is the second oral history compilation film in the Legacy series produced by the San Leandro Public Library. Legacy of the Nisei is funded by a grant from the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program administered by the California State Library.
