Fortune Magazine Examines Internment
The Displaced Japanese-Americans
Notes: A reprint of an article entitled "Issei, Nisei, and Kibei" from Fortune magazine, April 1944. The tone is gently critical of internment on procedural grounds and sympathetic to the incarcerated American citizens, but it rather lacks compassion for the real people involved.
Miné Okubo, a Japanese American artist who was released from the Topaz War Relocation Center as a result of her regular employment with Fortune, illustrates the front and back covers of this pamphlet. There are two pamphlet versions of this text, one with the original Fortune magazine title and without illustrations, and the retitled illustrated version here.
