Watch Complete Episode: February 17, 2012 »

February 19, 2012 marks the 70th anniversary of a dark chapter in American history; the internment of more than 110,000 citizens of Japanese descent by the United States government. One of those detention centers, the Manzanar War Relocation Center, was designated a National Historic Site twenty years ago. In this profile, former Aptos resident Dr. Masako Miura shares vivid memories of her time as an internee and physician at Manzanar in 1942.
