This book tells the important story of some Japanese Americans who were imprisoned in Manzanar and their survival struggles both during and after WWII. I learned so much and gained even greater respect for the courage and fortitude of my own parents and grandparents, now all deceased, who were put into a similar camp called Amache in Colorado.
Read today’s headlines and it is happening again. Oh, the people’s ethnicity is different and America is not officially at war, but mostly innocent people have been detained, separated from their children and held in makeshift prisons without any due process. They my be in this country illegally, but they are human beings! They fled their own countries for a better life for themselves and their children.
Separating parents from their children and encarcerating them is unnecessary and cruel. Sadly, history is repeating itself.
