8asians, the collaborative online publication that features original, diverse commentary by Asians from around the world, recently reviewed Jeanette Arakawa's new memoir, The Little Exile – much appreciated!
Here's a bit of what they have to say:
"[The Little Exile] is a must read for anyone interested in what it was like in the time after Pearl Harbor for Japanese Americans to what life was like in 'camp' and then in the time after they were released. It gives us a peak into the racism and the hate Japanese Americans had to endure during those years—but also the small acts of kindness that they also experienced too. These kinds of stories are important. Not only because they remember the past and tell us the facts, but also because they are able to put a face and a name to what happened—a historical tragedy."
