Yuri Kochiyama’s 95th Birthday

May 19th, 2016 @ Google in United States

Yuri Kochiyama was a Japanese American human rights activist.

Her life changed on December 7, 1941, when the Japanese Empire bombed Pearl Harbor. She was unaware of this event while she was teaching at church. Soon after the bombings, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, barged into her home looking for her father. Within a matter of minutes, the three men took her father away as he was considered a „suspect” who could threaten national security. The event happened so quickly she was unable to question their actions. Her father was sick to begin with and he had just been released from the hospital when the FBI arrested him. While her father was in federal prison he was denied medical care, and by the time he was released on January 20, 1942, he had become too sick to speak. Her father died the day after his release
