Grandfather's business in Hawaii while in camp

Transcrições disponíveis nas seguintes línguas:

When they went to Jerome and during the time when my grandfather was sent around the US, his business was doing well and fortunately he had these two trusted lieutenants that he basically said “Okay just keep the business going, Honolulu is still ok, everything is gonna be all right.” But clearly there were people who were trying to steal the business from him. And again you always look at the downside but these two people saved his agency and protected it during the entire war and also tried to get him money because his money was in Japanese banks and it was frozen and life was tough during the war.
