We are saddened to hear of the passing of Frank Kitamoto. Frank was one of Densho’s founding volunteers who helped define Densho’s mission of keeping the Japanese American story alive. Frank’s memorial service will be at 2pm on April 6th at the Woodward Middle School on Bainbridge Island. Densho interviewed Frank in 1998, and in this clip from his interview, he discusses the impact the World War II incarceration experience had on his life, even though he was young. Frank Kitamoto’s full interview is available in the Densho Digital Archive
