Nisei : the quiet Americans by Bill Hosokawa( Book )

15 editions published between 1969 and 2002 in English and held by 1,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The whole world of the Nisei- American-born Japanese- was destroyed on the day Pearl Harbor was attacked. Bill Hosokawa tells of the events that led up to the unprecedented wholesale evacuation of 110,000 Japanese Americans to internment camps, the way the evacuation decision was reached, how the Nisei fought to avert it; life in the evacuation camps, how the decision was reached to form a Nisei combat battalion, and to use other Nisei for intelligence work in the Pacific, and how their heroism helped to win acceptance for all Japanese Americans.

JACL in quest of justice by Bill Hosokawa( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1984 in Japanese and English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This history of the Japanese American Citizens League was written not only for its thirty thousand members but also to answer JACL's critics, notably the Sansei--third-generation Japanese Americans--many of whom believe their fathers should have resisted the Evacuation during World War ll. Did JACL chart a wise course of cooperation with the federal government, or did it betray American principles and its own constituents by urging them to accept evacuation to U.S. Army-operated concentration camps? One of the most important purposes of the book is to take the Sansei back to those tragic, controversial years and show them exactly what their fathers confronted. Not only did they meet that crisis in what seemed the only way feasible at the time, but JACL has fought for full rights of citizenship for Japanese Americans ever since the war with remarkable success--an extraordinary record of accomplishment despite limited resources and membership. This book is for everyone concerned about ways in which Congress and the Supreme Court can fail to uphold the Constitution, and for those who will appreciate the story of one minority group's total--and nonviolent--victory over discrimination."--Dust jacket

Born in Seattle, WA, of Japanese American parents, Jim Yoshida grew up in a skid row hotel operated by his parents. He played football at his high school and was named All-City fullback and offered a college athletic scholarship. Sadly, his father died. His mother took him and his sisters to Japan to deliver his father's ashes to the family burial plot when WWII broke out and the family had to stay in Japan. Jim was forced to serve in the Imperial Japanese Army in China. There he had many experiences and suffered terrible ordeals. When the war ended and he made it back to Japan, he learned that he had lost his U.S. citizenship. To prove his loyalty, he persuaded a US officer to let him serve illegally as a volunteer throughout the Korean War. This is Jim Yoshida's own account of 2 wars and how he regained the admiration of his fellow Americans

"Hosokawa traces personal histories, such as Bob Sakata's journey from internment in a relocation camp to founding of a vast vegetable farm; the conviction of three sisters for assisting the escape of German POWs; and the years of initiative and determination behind Toshihiro Kizaki's ownership of Sushi Den, a beloved Denver eatery. In addition to personal stories, the author also relates the larger history of the interweaving of cultures in Colorado, from the founding of the Navy's Japanese language school at the University of Colorado to the merging of white and Japanese American congregations at Arvada's Simpson United Methodist Church."--Jacket
