Event Description

During WWII, Santa Rosa and the rest of Sonoma County lost an entire community of Japanese Americans as well as the trust of the Japanese and Italian Americans. Japanese Americans were forced to relocate and were incarcerated in camps, losing their homes and livelihoods. While the Italian Americans avoided wholesale incarceration, some Italian nationals were incarcerated in relocation camps. Non-citizen Italians were forced to register as “enemy aliens,” placed on house arrest, forced curfews and were not allowed to travel more than 5 miles from home.  Join Press Democrat columnist Gaye LeBaron as she discusses with Marie Sugiyama, Mary Bertolini Dowdall, Bob Bertolini and Janice Morikawa, their or their parents’ experiences and how living as unwanted peoples changed their lives and their communities.
