An American Internment    NEW!

Through the novel My Mother Told Me Stories, we will study and remember an American people whose story is not often told: the story of how Japanese Americans were treated as enemies of America in the aftermath of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Caught up in a conflict beyond their control, over 120,000 Japanese Americans were required to give up their homes, businesses, and lives without complaint – solely on the basis of their ancestry – and were incarcerated for the duration of the war. In this class, we will explore the historical and cultural impact of the times as well as the themes of "gaman" (enduring the seemingly unbearable with patience and dignity), friendship, forgiveness, and the enduring love of family.
