Japanese Internment resource

Recommended Posts

If anyone is studying the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII, Joanne Oppenheim wrote a book - Dear Miss Breed - about a librarian in San Diego who kept correspondence with numerous middle and high school aged children who had been sent to the camps.


There are numerous primary source excerpts from letters written by the children, articles Clara Breed wrote in Horn Book magazine, etc and from the testimonies given in the early 1980s during the government committee investigation.


It covers the period from Pearl Harbor through the closing of the camps in 1945.


There is a website as well. There is a lesson plan there as well if you are interested.
