Only What We Could Carry

Item # 150409.

By Lawson Fusao Inada , Patricia Wakida , William Hohri.

In the wake of wartime panic that followed the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor, more than 120,000 Japanese Americans residing along the West Coast of the United States were uprooted from their homes and their communities and banished to internment camps throughout the country. 

Through personal documents, art, and propaganda, Only What We Could Carry expresses through words, art, and haunting recollections, the fear, confusion and anger of the camp experience. The only anthology of its kind, Only What We Could Carry is an emotional and intellectual testament to the dignity, spirit and strength of the Japanese American internees.  A project of the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program. 

Paper: 464 pp.
