In reading Avil Beckford’s review she was on point with everything about the book. Especially with the fact that the whole book is about making different life choices that people eventually go through in their lifetime (Beckford, Avil). Not all choices are easy and there are many that can affect your whole life. When looking at her review I did see some grammar and even some mistakes in names. I saw that she misnamed someone while summarizing, “Gabby Holland moves next door to Matt, and she moved to the small town to be closer to her boyfriend, Kevin,” where the name Matt is, that is supposed to be Travis (Beckford, Avil).
In the 1900s there was a lot of conflict between the Native Americans and America, the Native Americans have been around longer than the other explorers who came after some time and decided to take their land and, there was conflict between the Japanese after the Japanese had bombed an American base in Hawaii (Pearl Harbor). But who was treated the worst? The Native Americans were. This was because they had their children taken from them, were forced onto reservations, and they only had the clothes that were on their back.
In 1973 the novel Farewell To Manzanar was written by Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston and James D. Houston. This novel is about a young japanese-american girl named Jeanne Wakatsuki who was interned at Camp Manzanar along with her family after the Pearl Harbor bombing. The internment camps were built by the U.S. to hold people of japanese descent. Papa was proud of his samurai heritage and felt shame because of his families merchant status but that could not compare to the emotional pain and shame he felt at Manzanar.

“When the Emperor was Divine” is a novel written by Julie Otsuka. The novel is about a Japanese American family being sent to an internment camp during World War II. One of the major themes was isolation and separation as their father arrested by the FBI and was separated from his family and the mother and her two children are removed from their home and forced into internment camps, which were fenced and surrounded by desert, isolating them from the rest of the world. Because the family is uncertain about their future, they hope for the best to keep their minds off of their current suffering.
The war was coming closer to their home. “ The war was coming closer to home” (Lai 4). Ha said She and her family were scared of the war because their father was a prisoner of war (POW). He was captured by the Chinese.
Many have experienced depression of years being away from family, the strict rules and poor conditions on the field, and discriminations. Gentleman’s Agreement In 1907, the Gentlemen’s Agreement was established between the United States and Japan. In this act, the Japanese promised that they wouldn’t issue any more passports to emigrate to the US. But immigration for the wives, children, and parents of current Japanese resident in the US are allow.
This one line describes the harshness of the inhuman approach that America took in the unwarranted fear of the Japanese. Helen Brill’s account recalled how she came to be teacher at an internment camp in Manzanar. The conditions were less than ideal. The floor was the place to sleep before the residents were given cots stuffed with straw.
Chapter 8 of Precious Yamaguchi’s book, “ “Experiences Of Japanese American Women During And After World War II : Living In Internment Camps And Rebuilding Life Afterwards,” details the experience of Japanese American women during and after their stay at the internment camps . Yamaguchi explains that after their release from the internment camps, most of the women either went to school or found jobs and worked. Living in the internment camps changed the way Japanese women were expected to live their lives. It was a tradition for Japanese women to stay at home and get ,d, however “The World War II internment camps broke this tradition” (Yamaguchi 60).
Wattenberg was born in Lódz on October 10, 1924. She began a wartime diary in October 1939, shortly after Poland surrendered to German forces. The Wattenberg family fled to Warsaw, where in November 1940, Miriam, with her parents and younger sister, had to live in the Warsaw ghetto. In the summer of 1942, German officials detained Miriam, her family, and other Jews bearing foreign passports in the infamous Pawiak Prison. Published under … “Mary Berg” in February 1945, Miriam Wattenberg 's diary was one of the very few eyewitness accounts of the Warsaw ghetto available to readers in the English-speaking world before the end of World War II.
Many of them were participants in strikes and other civic conferences. To the United States, this was an act of disobedience and as a punishment the Japanese Americans were put in higher security or in segregated areas. To test camp resident loyalty questionnaires were created. If they answered no, then the residents were placed in high maximum security. However, the resistance to follow orders was only the beginning of a new era for the Japanese’s American citizen.
After graduating from UCLA in the spring of 1941, she had postponed her plans for graduate studies that summer to instead visit her sick aunt in Tokyo in place of her ill mother. During that same summer, relations between the United States and Japan were rapidly worsening, so any requests from Japanese Americans to travel to Japan were seen as suspicious by the U.S. government. As a result of this suspicion, Toguri 's application for a passport was handled slowly. Being a Japanese American, this lengthy wait-time would make sense, but Toguri was an American-born nisei (second generation Japanese American) that was about as American as she possibly could be, casting away nearly all Japanese traditions and policies.
The articles, “Their Best Way to Show Loyalty,” and “A Stolen Youth,” are about people getting evacuated by the Japanese army. Both articles have different points of views. For example, “The Best Way to Show Loyalty,” is an editorial published in 1943, so the main focus of this article is about how the Japanese were evacuated from their homes to temporary houses. Their internment was given by the government, they helped protect their properties, but their food and shelter will be given to them by the Federal Government. In my opinion, the internment in this article didn’t seem that bad due to having food and shelter with good conditions, others had it worse like in “A Stolen Youth,” with not having sanitary conditions.

Life on the homefront in World War 1was a remarkable part of the war effort for all participants that took place in the war. Life on the Homefront showed a major impact on the conclusion of the war. The HomeFront saw an immense change in the role of women, not only that but the rationing was dreadful to the families because there was so many people sent into war. When war was declared in August 1914, there were celebrations that took place on the streets of Britain.
