RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 52348959 LA English T1 Amache : the story of Japanese internment in Colorado during World War II A1 Harvey, Robert,, PB Taylor Trade Pub. ; Distributed by National Book Network PP Dallas, Tex.; Lanham, Md. YR 2003 SN 1589790383 9781589790384 AB "On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order No. 9066, forcing the evacuation of more than 100,000 Japanese-Americans from the West Coast to "settlement camps" inland." "This shameful dislocation of so many lives has been well-documented in such popular books as Farewell to Manzanar, but none, until now, have focused on the internment camp known as Amache, located on the southeastern plains of Colorado. This book not only presents the story of Amache within the broader context of World War II, but also details the effect the camp had on surrounding towns and southeastern Colorado in general. Based on extensive research as well as interviews with many survivors, Amache satisfies a long-standing need for a full-blown history of this disgraceful episode in our history."--Jacket.
