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.
