Reflections of Tacoma: Japanese Incarceration during World War II, Part 1

Tacoma Arts Live’s podcast series Reflections of Tacoma examines key events, people, and places in the history of the south sound, and the echoes of their impact both in their own time and how they reach out and affect Tacoma - centering in the Hilltop neighborhood – to this day.

On this episode, host Jamika Scott is joined by Merilee and Greg Tanbara, who discuss the incarceration of Japanese citizens during World War II through the lens of their parents and family's experience: their lives prior to the war, their experiences in camp and in military service, and ultimately settling in Tacoma, where their father opened a pediatric clinic in the Hilltop neighborhood.
