Product description


“Through this thoughtful story, we see how the harsh realities of the incarceration experience follow real lives, and how Manzanar will sway generations to come. When you finish the last chapter you will demand to read more.” --Gary Mayeda, national president of the Japanese American Citizens League

“An engaging, well-written telling of how former Manzanar detainees played key roles in remembering and righting the wrong of the World War II incarceration. Oral history testimonies and memoirs help personalize the decades following the war—a period of recovery from the nightmare of an American concentration camp.” --Tom Ikeda, executive director of Densho
