Identity and values

Like millions of other immigrants in the United States, first-generation Japanese and their children felt the tension of maintaining their cultural heritage amid pressures to conform to mainstream society while also dealing with discrimination. Although most new immigrants in this country have had to struggle with these same conflicts, one traumatic event sets Japanese Americans apart from other immigrant groups: the mass incarceration during World War II.
