Itsuka by Joy Kogawa( Book )

20 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although during the war both the United States and Canada interned Japanese-Americans and confiscated their property, when the war ended the property of those in Canada was never returned to them. Itsuka is the story of the fight to get government compensation for the thousands of victims of the wartime internment, which was, unbelievably, only just accomplished in 1988. Both a moving novel of self-discovery and a fascinating historical account of the fight for redress, Itsuka's final message is one of inspiration and hope

Growing up Canadian : media( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canadian children in the 20th century witnessed an explosion of innovations in communication and entertainment. Witnesses recall the first time that they saw the telephone, a movie, the television, the computer. Media intrigued children and often made parents suspicious. Canadians of all ages talk about the books, radio shows, TV programs, music and movies they loved as children. From listening in on the party line to watching newsreels, children became connected to an ever-expanding world. Media changed the definition of growing up Canadian. Media is one of a 6-part series"--Container verso
