From Holden:

Hey, they’re giving the enemy high school diplomas in California.

Amid tears and their grandchildren’s shouts of glee, 58 Japanese Americans sent to internment camps during World War II received diplomas Sunday, finally earning recognition from the communities they were forced to leave more than half a century ago.

The honorees, wearing colorful leis and sashes, walked down the aisle of Los Angeles Trade Technical College’s auditorium. Some needed canes, a few were in wheelchairs, and more than a few had tears in their eyes.

The graduates represented the largest group of former internees to ever receive their diplomas at one time.
