SAN DIEGO–One Man’s Internment Story program will be conducted in an interview format following a short history of Japanese American internment.

Carlsbad resident Jack Kubota was born in Pasadena, California, but moved to the Imperial Valley when he was an infant. His family had a trucking business, and he grew up and attended school in El Centro. In 1942 when he was 13 years old, his family was forced to move to an internment camp at Poston, Arizona. Mr. Kubota joined the Navy after high school, and eventually graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in Civil Engineering. Now in his 90s, he still works on engineering projects around San Diego County. His interviewer, Linda Canada, is a historian of local history who was the archivist for JAHSSD.
