Abstract

It is a little-known fact that in California during World War II, Italian Americans were subjected to an 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. curfew, searches of their homes, seizure of their property, and exclusion from prohibited zones along the coast. In a collection of essays, Una Storia Segreta brings together the voices of the Italian American community and experts in the field, including personal stories by survivors and their children, letters from internment camps, news clips, photographs, and cartoons
