In the early 1940s, as World War II raged on in Europe, another conflict was taking shape in America -- the imprisonment of Japanese Americans. 

Hundreds of thousands of Americans of Japanese ancestry were rounded up and incarcerated in the name of national security. Several years later, when they were released, they found themselves rebuilding their lives and communities. 

Brian Komei Dempster is a Japanese American whose own family was one of the thousands affected by this reshaping of their community. His new book Making Home From War: Stories of Japanese American Exile and Resettlement is a collection of writings by formerly imprisoned Japanese Americans as they retell their stories of incarceration and resettlement. He spoke with host Shirin Sadeghi.
