I often get asked why I wanted to write The Fences Between Us, and about the War Relocation Camps of WWII, and the 120,000 Nikkei who were sent to them.
Here is one answer. You can read the full story about these courageous men here.
I enjoyed your book so much. That is such an important part of the era to remember and never forget. The family of a former principal of mine was sent to one of the camps. The dignity with which they met such a travesty was remarkable.
