Easter, 1941: Roy Ebihara (at far left, with siblings Mary, Kathy and Bill) was part of a tight-knit Japanese community living in Clovis, N.M. After Japan declared war, the families were threatened by neighbors and forced to move to a small camp in Lincoln County. They were finally interned at Topaz Relocation Center in Utah.
