Newton Wesley, Chapel Speaker
In 1943 Newton Wesley was a chapel speaker. He described his personal experiences of forced relocation to an internment camp.
Selected quotes from his speech:
"I don't think any of us thought American citizens would be evacuated---time proved us wrong."
"May 5, 1942 was an eventful day which will live in my memory for that was the day I entered camp. . . I remember what a lovely day I thought it was; it felt good to draw the free air into my lungs for I was soon to be behind a barbed wire fence."
"Some believe it a dangerous precedent since the next time it could be that people of any particular racial background might be moved."
