Special acknowledgement goes to Jeffery Burton of the National Park Service for his assistance in making thousands of photographs available to us and for his extraordinary contribution in helping to author Confinement and Ethnicity: An Overview of World War II Japanese American Relocation Sites.

Another huge debt of gratitude is owed to Dr. Tetsuden Kashima, professor of American Ethnic Studies at the University of Washington and author of Judgment Without Trial: Japanese American Imprisonment during World War II. This book provided the framework and much of the content for this website. The website would have been incomplete without the rigorous scholarship and sage advice of Professor Kashima.

Finally, we would like to thank Mitsuye Yamada, Toshio Yasutake, and Joe Yasutake for allowing us to share their stories in One Family's Journey. Their personal narratives remind us all that the history of a country is most compelling when expressed through the experiences of families and individuals leading extraordinary lives in the face of overwhelming adversity.

Partial funding for this website came from the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program and the Washington Civil Liberties Public Education Program.
