Barbara Finneson gave her personal account of life on the West Coast, in California, during the Second World War. She was ten years old when America became involved in the war in 1941. The threat of air raids from the Japanese were a constant worry, including one night when they had an air raid.
Barbara Finneson remembers having many Japanese Americans in her class and being confused, when the war started, if they were now friend or foe. She has the most memories about rationing certain materials/foods, the different efforts done to aid the war on the Homefront, and the movies, the stars, and the newsreels that she would see often on the weekends.
