The Merced Assembly Center Documentary Interviews

About this Collection

The interviews in this collection were conducted during the production of the documentary The Merced Assembly Center: Injustice Immortalized. The individuals featured in these interviews provide a range of insights into the history of farming by both Issei and Nisei in the Central Valley, and detail the struggles that they and their families faced in the aftermath of the signing of Executive Order 9066, which spurred the internment of those of Japanese descent along the western coast of the United States in 1942.
