CATCH AND RELEASE
 
National Debt by Robin Amer and Jesse Seay
Two survivors of Japanese American internment describe how they went from being model citizens to being seen as the enemy. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. rounded up 120,000 people of Japanese descent and put them in internment camps. Nearly two-thirds of them were American citizens. Years later the U.S. government would apologize and pay reparations to people who had been held. However, in their fight for reparations they struggled with the question: how do you forgive someone when what’s been taken is basic human dignity?
