A short history of Japanese immigration to Australia before the war followed by a discussion of which people were interned at the outbreak of the war, and what happened to them after the war. After 75 years, very few former internees remain in Australia. The presentation will include words of former internees from interviews conducted for Yuriko’s research in the 1990s.
