During World War II, Japanese Americans was put in camp is a Japanese citizen suspected of many Japanese people. Japanese people have been new immigrants were particularly suspect. This was done as an enemy of intelligence activities to avoid known to American troops in Japan time information.
Is the great-grandfather who immigrated to Hawaii from Japan. When he was in Japan, fought as a soldier in the Russo-Japanese War Japan. So it’s very big suspicion that there is a nationalistic tendency. During the Second World War, came on a regular basis on behalf of the U.S. military, the Nikkei looked at the house. If it is properly Americanized Japanese people if their people are taken to the U.S. military camp is put into the Nikkei.
Great-grandfather and grandfather together, dig a hole and buried belongings brought from Japan when they emigrated to Hawaii. They included a samurai sword, it was art and Japanese lanterns, and many Japanese dishes. U.S. military judge shall be filled in anything Japanese. And my grandfather, had to abandon the Buddhist call to Christian evangelists. But now can not get back the property so you do not know where to bury them. It is very disappointing.
