(University of Illinois Press) During Japanese internment during World War II, the U.S. authorities turned photographs against Japanese Americans while the internees and their descendants used photography to tell their own stories. This study explores the photographic record of the imprisonment in war relocation centers and investigates why photographs were made, how they were meant to function, and how they have been interpreted subsequently by the press and museums in constructing versions of public history. Alinder is an assistant professor of history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
