Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

Yoshiko felt that the United States blatantly ignored the Constitution when they rounded up the Japanese and sent them to camps. Which Amendments to the Constitution should have given the Japanese protection? Who were some of those responsible for spreading rumors about alleged Japanese involvement in the bombing of Pearl Harbor? What there any proof that the Japanese were involved in the bombing? Was there any proof that they were not involved?

Essay Topic 2

The Army’s official euphemism for the forced removal of the Japanese was evacuation. Were the Japanese removed from the west coast for their safety? Where, in some minds, did the danger lie? Why would it have been more truthful for the Army to have said that the Japanese were being interned or imprisoned?

Essay Topic 3

In Chapter 3, Yoshiko told about mixed reactions to the bombing at Pearl Harbor. How did most of the Japanese that Yoshiko knew, including her family, feel when they heard the news? Why weren’t they concerned? How did the white people feel when they heard the news? Why was there such a varied reaction to the news?
