A Question of Loyalty - Internment at Tule Lake
At its peak in 1943, more than 18,000 people of Japanese ancestry labeled “disloyal” were detained at California’s Tule Lake Relocation and Segregation Center. This collection combines memoir and historical analysis to revisit internment and segregation at Tule Lake. The first section explores Japanese American evacuation from the west coast and relocation to the camp from evacuee and local perspectives. The second section looks at the renunciants of the Tule Lake Segregation Center—those detainees who, for a variety of reasons, renounced their citizenship and applied for expatriation to Japan. The work in this volume is new, original or perhaps little known, utilizing many sources that have been difficult to access in the past. Paper: 192 pp.
