When The Emperor Was Divine - Julie Otsuka - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of the book When the Emperor Was Divine:

As a Japanese in the United States, one family's experience.

My favorite Julie Otsuka quote from the book:"

"And remember, it's easier to bend than to break."



Questions I pondered while reading the book:

Who in the f-word decided on these camps?

How did we, as a nation of immigrants, justify that type of incarceration?

My review of  When the Emperor Was Divine:

I have seen Delta, Utah.

I am ashamed this was ever allowed.

Reacting this way to fear is not okay.
