Abstract:

"In the early days of Word War II, more than 110,000 persons of Japanese ancestry--roughly two-thirds of whom were American citizens--were taken from their homes along the West Coast and imprisoned in concentration camps. When they were finally allowed to leave, they faced a new challenge: How do you resume a life so interrupted? The twelve memoirs that comprise Making Home from War spotlight the thinly documented and sorely understudied chapter of Japanese American history generally known as 'resettlement.' This collection not only gives voice to an untold history but also informs, inspires, and heals."--From publisher description.
