Hiroshi Kashiwagi is a second generation Japanese (Nisei) who was born on November 8, 1922 in a boarding house in Sacramento, California. He grew up in Loomis, California with his mother, father and younger brother and sister. After high school, he was interned in Tule Lake with his family except his father who was hospitalized with tuberculosis. He was among many who answered "no" to the loyalty oath questions asked of all internees over seventeen. During his internment, Hiroshi began to write and act, a passion that continues today.
