Description/Summary:
KPIX Eyewitness News report from May 11th 1979 featuring brief scenes from an interview about the Japanese American internment during World War II, in which a man states his belief that: "I don't think that Senator Hayakawa really understands what the experience was all about because at the time of what was often called the 'evacuation' in 1942, he was a Canadian citizen living in Chicago. He didn't experience the evacuation and he wasn't incarcerated. So I don't think that he really has an understanding of that whole experience."
