Japanese Internment Camps Primary Source Reading & Worksheet
This is a marvelous first-person account of what it was like for a 19-year-old girl from California to be placed into an internment camp during World War II.
Told in a passionate, engaging style by civil rights activist Yuri Kochiyama, it tells the effects of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066 on her and her family. The worksheet is slightly edited to a one page reading for students with an introduction to set the stage. Following the reading is a set of comprehension questions to guide students thinking on this fascinating and tragic period of American history.
A great resource for a reading, civics, US History, or social studies class!
This can also be downloaded as part of the Holocaust and Genocides in History Unit Bundle
