Last Witnesses by Erica Harth

Book Description

Decades after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and FDR's Executive Order 9066 incarcerating over 110,000 Americans of Japanese descent (two thirds of them American citizens) one question remains unresolved: "Could it happen again?" To the writers in this book - novelists, memoirists, poets, activists, scholars, students, professionals - the Wolrd War II internment of Japanese Americans in the detention camps of the west is an unfinished chapter of American history. Former internees and their children join with others in challenging readers to construct a better future by confronting the past. This is a fresh look at a compelling story, told by some of the people who lived it, that continues to tarnish the American Dream.
