Tessaku (iron fence) is a collection of stories from the Japanese American incarceration during WWII. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the United States went into a state of shock and with poor political leadership, forcibly removed all Japanese Americans from their homes on the West Coast into isolated camps. These are the stories and memories of the people who lived it. ✿ Read more stories and find resources to help in tracking down your own family's camp history at

Great idea to have as many of these stories of incarcerated Nikkei told in first person. Keep it up!


I thoroughly enjoyed Nancy’s story. I look forward to many more Podcasts.
I thank you for all the time and dedication you have given to Tessaku. I think these stories must live on, so we never forget the awful treatment Japanese Americans endured.

Thank you

I have been following Tessaku and Diana’s work for a while, and am so grateful for the work she does. Because of her, survivors of the camps can have their stories heard and preserved for future generations. So glad these will be available on iTunes now, amazing first story!
