  • During camp life, for the Japanese, they had to change their names to English. Before Helen switched to her English name, her name was Chizuko.
  • Here are your tickets and money.
  • When Helen was in the camps, she was confronted in her newly transferred grammar school and was asked to raise the American flag and say she was American.
  • Helen's family was finally able to leave the camps!!!
  • Helen as a teenager
  • After finally getting out of the camps, they were given a 1-way ticket to anywhere in the U.S. and 25 dollars a person to "start their lives over."
  • Thank you sir!
  • Helen's parents tended to ignore and forget the situation after they got out of the internment camps because they were focused on actually trying to make a living since they were truck farmers.
  • As Helen Yasuda got older and started to really think back on what it was like in the internment camps, she thought, “One day we’re considered an enemy, we’re behind barbed wires.”
  • One day we’re considered an enemy, we’re behind barbed wires.
