Japanese American Internment

The United States entered World War II after a surprise attack by the Japanese on December 7, 1941. U.S. officials feared that Japanese Americans would betray their country and help Japan. Nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans were taken from their homes and moved into relocation centers, which some viewed as concentration camps. The internees, backed by many other Americans, believed that their fundamental rights as U.S. citizens had been denied. Years later the government apologized for its unjust actions.

VOYA - Kristen Rademacher

"Mixing personal anecdotes with primary sources and a nonfiction narrative style, the authors present each event clearly, and colorful inserts on most pages provide additional information. . . .Despite being a slight 112 pages, each book packs an impressive amount of detailed information, as well as an emotional punch. There are many photographs, maps, and newspaper clippings inserted throughout the book. . . .The series is valuable for both junior high and young senior high school research or for any reader interested in World War II. This series is a highly recommended purchase." - VOYA
