Harassment of Japanese Americans After the Pearl Harbor Bombing

January 6, 2021 - 2:02 am

After the Japanese military attacked Pearl Harbor, Japanese American communities in the United States faced growing animosity from their neighbors.   Dr. Roy Ebihara was eight years old at the time.  Dr. Ebihara recounts how terrifying it was living in New Mexico within the months after the US entered WWII.  Tom Ikeda of the Seattle-based, Densho Project interviewed him.

Dr. Ebihara’s father worked for the Santa Fe Railroad.  Dr. Ebihara served in the U.S. Army for two years immediately after the Korean War. He went on to practice Optometry in Cleveland, Ohio. He is currently retired, and is active in the community.
