The Japanese Americans were forced towards the camps, as a consequence of Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor,where they were faced with various difficulties. The sequel of Journey to Topaz tells about the change that was awaiting the Japanese community in the U.S. as they return from the camps (Uchida 56). Although the family of Yuki expresses utmost fidelity for the land where they live, moreover Yuki’s brother, Ken, has lost his leg in the war where he fought for the U.S (Uchida 79).
The theme of non-acceptance is reflected in the instances of the assails by the ‘agitators’ of the U.S. who ‘threatened’ the ‘Japanese’ in the ‘camps’ and ‘turned their anger at being in camp against anyone who, like papa(of Yuki), worked with the administration to keep the camp running smoothly’ (Uchida 5). In addition, the ‘agitators’ went on to ‘throw a stink bomb into their barack rooms’ (Uchida 5).
