Japanese-American regiment liberated the prisoners in Dachau concentration camp, ironically, since their relatives back in America had been rounded up and put in relocation camps during the war. Sandler tells the story of these camps and the life in them, and what their inhabitants faced when the war was over and they left the camps. Illus. with photos.

Great resource book - for this difficult period in American history after Pearl Harbor. Relates to current immigration issues and defining who is American - and, gives perspective to anti-Muslim sentiment after 9/11.
