When Mary Matsuda was 16 years old, her life changed forever. Mary's happy carefree life growing up on a berry farm in Washington State ended the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Along with her brother Yoneichi, and her parents, Mary was forced to leave her Vashon Island home and face imprisonment in Japanese-American internment camps during World War II. Why? Because Mary was Japanese American and she looked like the enemy.
