Although carefully promoted as The American Uyenos, the mere presence of these Japanese-Americans caused Australian military intelligence to examine the immigration files of all Wirths alien employees. As the war in the Pacific got underway, the Uyenos werebobliged to join several thousand other enemy aliens in an internment camp at Tatura, Victoria for the duration of the war. In 1946, the Uyenos were forcibly repatriated to Japan rather than the United States. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 10438
