Japanese-American internment during World War II

In 1942, during World War II, the U.S. government moved Japanese-Americans from their West Coast homes to detention centers.

The Lucky Baseball is a fictionalized account of that time.

The Tragic History of the Japanese-American Internment Camps written by Deborah Kent also details the sad history of these camps, the reasons behind their creation, and how the internees made the best of their deplorable situation, and finally received an official apology from the U.S. Government.
