Print
While Americans fought for freedom and democracy abroad, fear and suspicion towards Japanese Americans swept the country after Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Culling information from extensive, previously unpublished interviews and oral histories with Japanese American survivors of internment camps, Martin W. Sandler gives an in-depth account of their lives before, during their imprisonment, and after their release. Bringing readers inside life in the internment camps and explaining how a country that is built on the ideals of freedom for all could have such a dark mark on its history, this in-depth look at a troubling period of American history sheds light on the prejudices in today's world and provides the historical context we need to prevent similar abuses of power.

Japanese-American regiment liberated the prisoners in Dachau concentration camp, ironically, since their relatives back in America had been rounded up and put in relocation camps during the war. Sandler tells the story of these camps and the life in them, and what their inhabitants faced when the war was over and they left the camps. Illus. with photos.

Great resource book - for this difficult period in American history after Pearl Harbor. Relates to current immigration issues and defining who is American - and, gives perspective to anti-Muslim sentiment after 9/11.
