Beyond The Camps: From Japanese American Internment Nightmare to ‘American Dream’

Item # 153634.

By Denny Dressman and Dr. John Elliff.

Much has been written about the gross injustice of Japanese American incarceration during World War II, and how hard and degrading life was in the camps. But relatively little has been published about what happened after the nightmare ended. Beyond The Camps captures the stories of resettlement through interviews with former internees and their children. Exhibiting determination, imagination, patience and resourcefulness, Japanese Americans picked up their lives and pursued the “American Dream”—with impressive and varied success. Hardbound: 227 pp.
