These documents reflect the Commission's 20 days of hearings and testimonies from more

than 750 witnesses in 1981, in cities across the country. These witnesses included Japanese

Americans and Aleuts who had lived through the events of WWII, former government officials

who ran the internment program, public figures, internees, organizations such as the

Japanese American Citizens League, and professionals who have studied the subjects of the

Commission's inquiry. Included also are publications, reports, press releases, photographs,

newspaper clippings, and transcripts that relate to the hearings. Many of the transcripts are

personal stories of experiences of evacuees.
