Description
For some Japanese American internees, work-release programs were an option for escaping the poor living conditions of the War Relocation Centers. Once participants passed "loyalty" and "character" investigations, individuals were able to leave the relocation centers to find work. One destination for Japanese Americans was Seabrook Farms located in New Jersey. Due to the employment constraints caused by the war, Seabrook employed internees to work in the fields harvesting vegetables.
