Beginning in 2005, TVCC's Oral History Project, under the direction of Gerry Hampshire, sought to record the events that violated the civil rights of those who lived through the internment.

As you see the images of the aftermath in Hiroshima during the exhibit that continues at the Performing Arts Center through May 13th, we invite you to watch and listen to the experiences of Japanese-American citizens who lived through the Internment.
In recent years, when events have prompted suggestions of interning other citizens, such as Arab-Americans, some of the Japanese-Americans who endured in the camps, are the first to come out and speak up and say "Never again!" Their voices continue to be needed and valued as we continue to live in a turbulent world.
