What I’m Reading: Farewell to Manzanar – 19 in a series – “Early in February the government’s Loyalty Oath appeared.”

August 17th, 2019

Early in February the government’s Loyalty Oath appeared.

LATER IN DECEMBER THE ADMINISTRATION GAVE each family a Christmas tree hauled in from the Sierras. A new director had been appointed and this was his gesture of apology for all the difficulties that had led up to the riot, a promise of better treatment and better times to come. […] Better times were a long way off, and the difficulties, it seemed, had just begun. Early in February the government’s Loyalty Oath appeared. Everyone seventeen and over was required to fill it out. This soon became the most divisive issue of all. It cut deeper than the riot, because no one could avoid it.”

From Farwell to Manzanar by by Jeanne Wakatsuki Housto and James D. Houston
