Memorial address, Dec. 3, 1944, Topaz Relocation Center
Memorial address given December 3, 1944 by Masaru Narahara for 10 Japanese American soldiers who died in action. Narahara, chairman of the Community Council at the Topaz Relocation Center where the address was given, paid honor to the memory of 10 soldiers who had lived as residents of the Center prior to enlisting. “We honor them” siad Narahara, “because we realize that they had to confront not one enemy, but two. At home, the insidious enemies of democracy who questioned the integrity of loyal Americans of Japanese ancestry. Abroad, the thoroughly trained, organized and equipped armies of Europe.”
