Description
This excerpt written by Edward N. Barnhart, a member of the Department of Speech, University of California, Berkeley discusses the removal of about one thousand Japanese Peruvians from Peru in 1943 and 1944 to the United States, where they were interned for the duration of World War II. He explains that after the war, the Peruvian government refused to allow them to return and as a result many of these one thousand men, women, and children went to Japan.
