'When the Emperor was Divine' by Julia Otsuka
Was it the right decision-morally speaking? Right or wrong; during the Second World War numerous Japanese families were forced to leave their homes and belongings and placed in internment camps all over the USA.
Otsuka’s small and brilliant novel, concentrating on one family, shows the Japanese perspective and emotions. Historically important, ‘When the Emperor was Divine’ is an impressive and moving story that may start lenghthy discussions.
Perhaps there is no right or wrong?
