Hear Alton Chung perform an excerpt from his show in the character of Fred Korematsu.

More than 100,000 Japanese and Japanese-Americans were forcibly moved to internment camps during World War II.

A Portland-area performer is telling the lives of six people affected by the internments in a dramatic one-man show.

Kodomo No Tame Ni – For the Sake of the Children – continues this weekend at the Hipbone Studio in Portland.
