David Mura--Where the Body Meets Memory

  • David Mura is a poet, novelist, and memoirist who has written most about his experience of being a Sansei--or third generation Japanese American whose life is underpinned by the experience of his parents and grandparents in World War II in the U.S.  
  •  The Densho project is the best place on the internet to find substantive/reviewed information about Japanese Internment and related topics.  This link is for a Reading called "The Question of Loyalty" about the two questions asked of detainees who could serve in the armed services concerning their loyalty to the United States.  The answer and response created conflict among Japanese Americans.
