Summary
  • "An oral history about Japanese internment during World War II, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, from the perspective of children and young people affected"--
  • After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the United States government forcibly removed more than 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry from the Pacific Coast and imprisoned them in desolate detention camps until the end of World War II just because of their race. Here Kamei weaves the voices of individuals who lived through this tragic episode, most of them as children and young adults. They tell the story of their incarceration and the long-term impact of this dark period in American history, at a time when many Americans are confronting questions about racial identity, immigration, and citizenship. -- adapted from jacket
