From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Dave Tatsuno (born Masaharu Tatsuno August 18, 1913 – January 26, 2006 in California) was a Japanese American businessman who documented life in his family's internment camp during World War II. His footage was later compiled into the film Topaz (named for the Topaz War Relocation Center where he was confined). The film was placed in the National Film Registry, part of the Library of Congress, in 1997. He was a 1936 graduate of the University of California, Berkeley.[1]

While Tatsuno had said that he was born in San Francisco, photographs of his mother arriving from Japan showed him as an infant in her arms.
