Editorial Reviews

Review

"It deserves a place on coffee tables and home libraries of anyone with any degree of social and historical consciousness, Japanese American or not."
—George Toshio Johnston, Rafu Shimpo


"They are striking images of proud people who faced their government imposed adversity with dignity and even humor. They are photographs for the ages."
—Sandra Dallas, The Denver Post

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was an artful compilation of Hikaru Iwasaki's photographic documentation of Japanese-American resettlement from WWII relocation centers. I first learned of the book in an article published in the Denver Post last summer. My mother was a young girl during the war. She was relocated to Heart Mountain, Wyoming with her parents and younger brother. There is a picture of my grandfather in the book. Aside from its personal meaning I enjoyed this book for the beauty of the photographs. Iwasaki managed to capture a glow in the people and places that participated in the resettlement. I have read extensively on the Japanese-American relocation and have found it to be a sad part of our history. I would like to say that this book was more a testament to happier times and the kindness and compassion of the American people.
