Long time Libertyville resident Dr. Harold Arai is a survivor of one of the ten US relocation camps created following the initiation of World War II and the execution of Executive Order 9066. His family was uprooted from their secure home in Los Angeles, California and he was incarcerated in a Japanese American Internment Camp at the age of seven for four years. He has carried vivid memories of this early part of his life for over seventy years. Dr. Arai will share these vivid memories of camp life as well as the history and legacy of Executive Order 9066.
