Dr. Frank Kitamoto, president of the Bainbridge Island Japanese Community, will speak to Clover Park High School students Friday, May 6, about his family’s experience in an Idaho internment camp.
His presentation, “Putting Human Back into Human Rights: Lessons from the Past to Help us Live in the Now” tells the story of Bainbridge Island’s Japanese American residents, beginning with their early years as farmers, and going on to the tragic stories of their evacuation and incarceration during World War II.
