Martin Sandler wrote and illustrated Imprisoned: The Betrayal of Japanese Americans during World War II. This book should be required to read so people can understand how a group of minorities were treated in the United States during World War II. This book is ideal for students in sixth grade. This book gives a great portrayal of the events that happened during this time. ( )

This is a long book that I would only use with older kids and even though it is classified as a children's book, I do not see that as much. It does a great job depicting what happens when suspicion of others different from us can do. This might be a good race equality type of book in the classroom. Genre, informational, as it tells about WWII and the Japanese Americans. Media, penciling. ( )

This was a very interesting look at the internment camps during WWII, but I did not love the layout. ( )

A well-researched and cited source, students will be able to learn more about another group of people that experienced racism and discrimination during World War II. Because these Asian Americans looked like the enemy, the American government thought it safer to lock them in internment camps. The book details how these wronged individuals made the best out of their poor situations.

While Americans fought for freedom and democracy abroad, fear and suspicion towards Japanese Americans swept the country after Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor. Culling information from extensive, previously unpublished interviews and oral histories with Japanese American survivors of internment camps, Martin W. Sandler gives an in-depth account of their lives before, during their imprisonment, and after their release. Bringing readers inside life in the internment camps and explaining how a country that is built on the ideals of freedom for all could have such a dark mark on its history, this in-depth look at a troubling period of American history sheds light on the prejudices in today's world and provides the historical context we need to prevent similar abuses of power.
