David Sakura, a third-generation Japanese-American, was six years old when his family was forced to leave Eatonville and move to Minidoka, Idaho, as part of the internment of Japanese people during World War II.

He returned to Eatonville for an extended visit this week to talk about his family’s experiences. Video: Drew Perine Music: “Light Thought var 1” Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ (Tacoma News Tribune)
