A source of the history of judo

As some of you know, my part-time job allows me to read, while I am getting peanuts. I have just finished The Japanese American Story by S. Floyd Mori.

In this book, was a link to www.densho.org. In their archives you will find some interviews about judo in the US during WWII from Japanese-American who were interned in one of the ten relocation camps in the US. As well after WWII.
