Farewell to Manzanar
Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston & James D. Houston
Land of the free?
America is considered to one of the greatest nations in the world, but is it truly all that wonderful? Racism can be seen far and wide across America this is not limited to the Japanese-Americans that live here. Internment camps made especially for is where many spent years in because of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The entire nation went into mass chaos, making weapons by the thousands and stripping the Japanese of all rights and property after the attack on Pearl Harbor. A book about what the war and getting sent to a camp meant to the 8 year old named Jeanne. A very accurate representation of her early years of life all the way to when they left camp and felt the true colors of the American race.
The camp the author and many other Japanese were held.
The event that stripped the Japanese Americans of all dignity.
The cabins the Japanese were to sleep in while in the camps.
