The art of gaman

The Washington Post has an article and a photo slideshow of work by artists who were interned in the U.S. concentration camps.  Although I don’t think that last one is a bear.

When will writers stop referring to this as the “Japanese internment”?


One thought on “The art of gaman

  1. I think people are reluctant to call them concentration camps because the term has been claimed by people referring only to the Holocaust. The beneficent USA can’t be associated with the Nazis!

    And, no way that’s a bear.
