    This is another book I had to OWN. Excellent telling by many of the experiences of Japanese-Americans during WW11. I realize it was a different time but no amount of reparations could suffice for all that was lost. It was a national tragedy.How would other races, Germans, Italians, (insert country of choice), have taken to being given 10 days to pack up and leave everything behind?I think what if I were given 10 days to leave my home?We must never forget.

    Stories of the internment from many angles. I've read several books already and this book presented many other points of experience. Experiences in Hawaii of being Japanese; editorials in various newspapers on the internment; poems; art; moving stories of separation and loss and heartache; leaving for the internment camps; the challenges of the camps-the food, the weather, the inadequate facilities. I recommend it highly!

    The book was a superlative collection of personal experiences, photos and artwork which tell me what my dad endured during WWII along with over 100,000 other American citizens - they were just of the wrong race. I now know what my cousin means when she says the latrine was just a concrete slab with holes and also as to why my dad refuses to eat liver, even to this day.

    This book will make you cry. It is another great book about a dirty little secret in the History of the USA. After reading this book you will have a greater understanding about why our immigration policy is so messed up and how the events of today are not new but have a long history.

    This is an amazing treasure-trove of information--personal, historical, graphic, literary, and most of all deeply moving. These original documents provide powerful evidence of the human costs of U.S. wartime policies of fear and racial stereotyping. Each entry contributes to a fuller picture of our national shame and provides a cautionary tale challenging current xenophobic assertions about those US residents--citizens and non-citizen residents--who do not fit the Norman Rockwell picture of what an "American" should look like. Highly recommended.

    I gifted this to a close Japanese-American friend who found it absolutely fascinating.

    More on the injustice of Americans against Americans during WWII, and the lessons we need to NOT forget!

    I bought this for research purposes as a primary source. The compilation is thoughtfully put together and the excerpts are cohisive.
