The Japanese Americans in the San
Fernando Valley Oral History Project documents the lives of Japanese Americans who
lived, or are currently living, in the San Fernando Valley. The participants are
multi-generational, with many who experienced firsthand internment and prejudice during
World War II. The narrators also shared stories of farming, family emigration from
Japan, and the building of their lives and families in the San Fernando Valley both
before and after the war.
