From the reading in Takaki this week you have had an introduction to the history of Japanese internment. Now visit The Densho Project (Links to an external site.) and browse through its contents. Before you leave the site, please visit the Archive section (Links to an external site.) and listen to or view at least two of the interviews and personal histories recorded there.
