Both the COCC Library catalog and the whole library homepage are very helpful to me in leading me to sources.Finally, if possible, I would like to actually travel to Tule Lake, California, which is the site of a former concentration camp during World War II.
There was not much research or inquiry pertaining to whether or not they were truly spies, and they were not given a chance to speak up or try to prove their innocence.
The types of primary sources that I plan on using are magazines, journals, books, and videos.
I have found that there are numerous books written about the Japanese-American internment during World War II.
I plan on consulting books for the majority of the information that I need for reasons why such actions were taken against the Japanese-Americans as well as information on reimbursement/apologies for the internment.
I was ultimately shocked that the United States could do such a thing as if it was on its way to removal from United States history.
So, I did a small research paper on the internment my junior year in high school.
I have previously researched about this topic, but I would like to perform more in-depth, quality, college-level research and learn more about the complete situation.
I feel that this will be a challenge and I will learn a wealth of information.
I have found some magazines and journals that give personal accounts of what the Japanese-American internment victims went through throughout the whole wartime era.
One such magazine, called the Booklist, has an article in it titled This tells of a Japanese-American family that lived in Hood River, Oregon, and how they were treated. I plan on searching for other videos that give first-hand experiences.
