Report in which de Cristoforo describes her role as "an informant for an anthropologist," Rosalie Hankey (Rosalie H. Wax), and de Cristoforo's contention that Hankey had gained de Cristoforo's and other people's trust by misrepresenting her research as being confidential and for purposes of her dissertation only. De Cristoforo states that Hankey was actually a "paid researcher for the Japanese American Evacuation and Resettlement Study (JERS)," and that de Cristoforo has been "grievously damaged by Hankey's unethical behavior and by the lies and distortions she wrote about [her.]" In the course of the discussion, which focuses on her experience at the "Tule Lake Segregation Center," de Cristoforo provides a historical overview of her life and events leading up to and including the period of the incarceration of people of Japanese descent during World War II, as well as her and her family's experience during forced removal to the Fresno Assembly Center and the Jerome incarceration camp prior to transfer to the Tule Lake incarceration camp. Document lists author as Violet Kazue de Cristoforo (formerly Violet Kazue Matsuda). Related to csufr_vkdc_0012, A Victim of the Japanese Evacuation and Resettlement Study (JERS).
