Explore Japanese Internment through the voices of those who endured removal, those who designed this notorious forced migration, and those who witnessed the broken promise of American democracy.

This document collection sheds light on Japanese American internment through the voices and perspectives of those who directly experienced this event as well as those who created the policy behind it. The book provides readers with a wide range of first-hand accounts, government reports, and media responses that help readers to better understand the events of this unfortunate period of American history.

Each document has contextualizing information to help students understand content they may come across in their research.
