Nancy Baldwin describes growing up in rural California with an entirely Deaf family. She discusses how her parents communicated with her and how her family learned of Executive Order 9066, and the family’s subsequent experiences at multiple incarceration camps during World War II. She recalls how others related to her deafness, including at the camps, at the California School for the Deaf, and generally in her life upon returning to California after the war.

Note: This interview was conducted in American Sign Language. The written transcript is available online. The video interview is available in The Bancroft Library.
