By ELEANOR HEDGES DUROY, age 12
- I am a second generation Japanese-American who studied journalism in college.
- After I graduated from college, I could not find a job in the United States because white Americans did not want to hire me in the late 1930s.
- I travelled to Asia to find work and returned to the United States in 1941, just as WWII was starting.
- I was sent to Heart Mountain Japanese Internment Camp in 1942 with my wife and son.
- To draw attention to our lives and to keep people working together, I helped run the Heart Mountain Sentinel newspaper which covered events that occurred within the internment camps.
- After I left the camp, I worked as a reporter and editor for the Denver Post newspaper and wrote several books including Nisei: The Quiet Americans and Out of the Frying Pan: Reflections of a Japanese American.
