Voices from the Camps: Internment of Japanese Americans During World War II

by Larry Dane Brimner
 
The bombing of Pearl Harbor by the Japanese air force on December 7, 1941, which crippled the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet and killed more than 2,400 American sailors, is well known. However, another casualty of the attack on Pearl Harbor has, until recently, been ignored.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Brimner has taken personal accounts and woven them into his clearly written text that describes the Japanese-American internment during World War II. After a short background on the Asian presence on the West Coast, he covers what happened after Pearl Harbor, what life was like in first the assembly and then the relocation centers, Japanese-American contributions to the war effort, and the closing of the camps. Voices nicely complements Jeanne W. and James D. Houston's eloquent, far more detailed Farewell to Manzanar (Bantam, 1983) and gives additional information about people and events mentioned in Sheila Hamanaka's The Journey (Orchard, 1990). There is, however, some careless inattention to detail: the author describes children getting ready for school and adults for the workday on December 7, 1941, which fell on a Sunday. Two inserts contain good-quality, glossy, black-and-white photographs.-Diane S. Marton, Arlington County Library, VA
