Confinement and Ethnicity: An Overview of World War II Japanese American Relocation Sites by Jeffery F. Burton, Mary M. Farrell, Florence B. Lord, and Richard W. Lord [in AsianWeek]

Confinement and EthnicityExtremely timely title, especially with impending war upon us, that offers “an overview of the tangible remains currently left at the sites of the Japanese American internment during World War II.” Includes an amazing essay, “To Undo a Mistake is Always Harder Than Not to Create One Originally,” from none other than Eleanor Roosevelt, who published the piece in 1943 after visiting the Gila River Relocation Center in Arizona.
