Review º E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ö Martin W. Sandler 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Americans swept the country after Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor Culling information from extensive previously unpublished interviews and oral histories with Jap. The story of what happened to Japanese Americans shortly after the United States entered World War II never ceases to stun me And as Martin Sandler shows in his newest nonfiction book Imprisoned it is especially ironic that while we were fighting a war to save democracy we had no compunction about taking it away was a whole section of American society by placing them in internments camps scattered throughout the US located out in the middle of nowhere But as Sandler points out fear and mistrust of Japanese immigrants to the US didn't begin with World War II And so we are given a short history about the arrival of the Japanese; their willingness to take any kind of work when they first arrived here; how they saved their money and how they were eventually able to afford their piece of the American Dream But they looked different their language was different their religion and culture were different and so they faced anti Japanese signs and sentiments all over the West Coast As Japanese arrived laws were passed preventing Japanese immigrants from owning law then congress passed the Immigration Act which banned Japanese immigration to the US altogether And of course according to The Naturalization Act of 1790 citizenship was already out of the uestion for any non white not born on American soil Yet despite all of these obstacles Sandler points out the Japanese still managed to thrive in this countryThat was until December 7 1941 when the Japan attacked the United States in Pearl Harbor Hawaii Once again fear and mistrust reared up And despite the fact that there was no indication that the Japanese and their Americans born children were the least bit sympathetic to or in cahoots with Japan it didn't take long for the hate and suspicion mongers to convince the President of the United States to sign Executive Order 9066 placing them in internment campsIn this relatively short 176 pages well researched well written book Sandler gives us tells the story of life in the internments camps through personal accounts and interviews never before published all supplemented with a abundance of photographs providing a in depth look at what went on before during and after the war It was a little difficult reading this book because it was from Net Galley and I downloaded it to my Kindle App and the photos weren't where they should have been and the wonderful personal accounts that are included were also kind of helter skelter so I am very anxious to see and reread the actual book when it comes out on August 27 2013 Despite my difficulty reading Imprisoned I would still highly recommend it to anyone interested in WW2 home front history A nice companion book which Sandler also mentions is Citizen 13660 by Miné Okubo which I review back in 2011The story of internment of Japanese and Japanese Americans didn't end with WW2 Given 25 and a ticket home Sandler goes on to briefly cover how the internees returned to their homes to find everything gone how they worked hard to get back on their feet yet againdespite yet obstacles and finally their fight for reparations in the 1970s and 1980s There is copious back matter including places to visit websites with additional information and a nice in depth index one of my favorite back matter elements that often is not as well done as this oneThis book is recommended for readers age 10This book was an E ARC from Net GalleyThis review originally was posted on The Children's War

ImprisonedAnese 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. No matter how many times I read about the events leading up to and including the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II it makes me sick every time Every ideal represented by the American flag was violated by imprisoning people for no reason other than their race Some of the details provided by Sandler are all too reminiscent of the Nazis and the Japanese Empire other than murder I've always believed that when we behave like those we fightcondemn we are no better than they are and this time in our history shows that all to clearly Sandler does a nice job summing up the events that led to the imprisonment of 120000 Japanese Americans including a discussion of Japanese immigration and Pearl Harbor He goes on to present facts about how and why it was decided to force the Japanese Americans into concentration camps supposedly a risk of sabotage and spying which was never proven against any of those imprisoned Those is favor of this plan out numbered those against In addition to explaining about life in the camps Sandler discusses the Japanese Americans who served in the military both as interpreters and combat soldiers Life after the camps and the search for redress are covered in the second to last chapter The last chapter focuses on the possibilities of such a thing happening again and the importance of not letting it happen again even after September 11 A powerful account of historical events that should be known in order for it to never happen again
