Summary
  • "This is the story of Kiyo Sato and her family and their experience in the U.S. Japanese Internment Camps during WWII."--
  • 1941. Kiyo Sato, her eight younger siblings and their parents on a small farm near Sacramento, California, where they grew strawberries, nuts, and other crops. The Satos were an ordinary American family-- until they weren't. The day Japan bombed the US naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, US president Franklin Roosevelt declared war on Japan and the United States officially entered World War II. In February and March, 1942, Roosevelt signed two executive orders which paved the way for the military to round up all Japanese Americans living on the West Coast and incarcerate them in isolated internment camps for the duration of the war. The family were among the nearly 120,000 internees. Sato and Goldsmith tell the story of the internment years. Sato has used her experience to educate other Americans about their history, to promote inclusion, and to fight against similar injustices. -- adapted from jacket
