Home > Farewell to Manzanar > Nisei Voices

Nisei (nee-say) is a Japanese word that means 'second generation'. It refers to a native-born citizen of the United States or Canada whose parents were Japanese immigrants. Share in these personal stories of local Nisei who spent their youth in Japanese Internment Camps during World War II. These stories were collected and produced by the Center for Multicultural Cooperation. We thank them for making these important historical records available to us for the Farewell to Manzanar Program Series.
