Recreation area at the Tanforan Assembly Center
Did you know that the site of the Tanforan mall in San Bruno also used to be a Japanese internment camp?
I didn't either.
That mall sucked anyway.
Anyway, today at the mall, internees and their children (some of them born at the Tanforan site during the internment period) held a reunion to hold testimony about their pasts and remind current generations "of the injustices that the internees experienced."
Thanks to the good folks at SFist for the heads up.
