Abstract:

Tule Lake Concentration Camp was one of 10 used to unjustly imprison Americans of Japanese descent during World War II. It is unique in that it was the only camp converted into a maximum security segregation center after the "loyalty questionnaire" separated those who answered "no-no" from those considered "loyal." Tule Lake also became the largest of the 10 camps after it was designated the segregation center where 12,000 "no-nos" and their families were sent from the other nine concentration camps. More than 18,700 Nikkei were imprisoned in barracks designed for a maximum of 15,000. While Japanese Americans at other camps were being released, Tule Lake continued to be patrolled by armed guards and was the last of the camps to close in March 1946. This updated edition includes a larger map of the camp and additional information discovered about Tule Lake over the last decade. In particular, the sections on segregation and renunciation have been expanded to provide a clearer explanation of the forces that resulted in life-changing decisions. The second section of the book has clear maps and explanations of 12 sites within the camp and four related sites. Using the guide, visitors to the California site just south of the Oregon border can take a self-guided tour of the historic site.
