The anti-Japanese hysteria that swept the United States after Dec. 7, 1941, will be the topic of a free lecture 12-1:30 p.m. Thursday, April 26, in Room 1610 at Oakton Community College, 1600 E. Golf Road, Des Plaines.

"The History and Remembrance: The Internment of Japanese-Americans 1941-1946" will focus on the more than 120,000 people of Japanese descent, two-thirds of them citizens, who were held in internment camps after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.
