Kiyoko (Kay) Takahara (93) – An Interview

Elder Kiyoko (Kay) Takahara shares her stories of growing up in Cumberland BC (Vancouver Island) and the forced relocation to Hastings Park and then onto internment camps in the interior of her young family during WWII. She also talks about the second uprooting that took place after WWII where her family was given the ‘choice’ of going east to work on farms, or “back to” Japan (though it was her first time to go there).
