Internment CampsUnknown - 2017
This timely title examines the internment of "enemy aliens" in the United States and Canada during the Second World War. With particular emphasis on the plight of Japanese-American and Canadian citizens, the book reveals the events, mindsets, and policies leading up to and following the forced removal of thousands of citizens from their homes into internment camps. Real-life accounts help readers examine differing perspectives on the events, think critically about citizenship and diversity in North America, and understand how harmful stereotypes in today's global climate run the risk of repeating past mistakes.
