Description


Throughout its history, America has often been guilty of inflicting the very injustices it has tried to exterminate. One such period came in the first stages of the second world war when Americans, seized by the fear that they might become victims of fifth-column activities, began to see neighbors of different ethnic backgrounds as enemies. Within months of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Americans sought ways to rid themselves of potential threats in the easiest and most convenient method possible--concentration camps.

In this second edition of Amache: The Story of Japanese Internment in Colorado During World War II, Robert Harvey outlines one of the darkest chapters in Colorado's history. Amache is a comprehensive must-read that will forever preserve the voices and stories of those who endured this dark period of our nation's past.

"Harvey has done an excellent job of writing about Amache, a historical subject that needs to be repeatedly and accurately told. He has done it with solid research and great compassion."

Robert Y. Fuchigami Ed.D. University of Illinois, former Amache inmate - 1942-1945, professor and author Amache: Remembered: An American Concentration Camp
