Delphine Hirasuna's mother died in 2000, and while she was going
through her mother's possessions in the family garage in Lodi, she
found a wooden bird pin in a wooden box.
Hirasuna had never seen the pin, but she knew it uncovered a
secret her parents kept from their children - they were in a
Japanese internment camp during World War II.
