This document collection sheds light on Japanese American internment through the voices and perspectives of those who directly experienced this event as well as those who created the policy behind it. It provides a wide range of first-hand accounts, government reports, and media responses that offer better understanding of the events of this unfortunate period, with contextualizing information to help students understand content they may come across in their research. This format accommodates a wide range of documents that includes a variety of viewpoints and perspectives, such as eyewitness pieces (personal narratives, letters; and first-hand accounts); media pieces (newspaper articles, op-ed articles, and reactions and responses to the events); and government and legislative pieces (laws, proclamations, rules, etc.). Includes a preface, introduction, and guide to primary documents, plus the text or excerpt of each document with an introduction, and additional readings.
