Pamphlet, "70,000 American Refugees - Made in USA"

Many fellow US citizens recognized the unjust interment of American people and went so far as to question the democratic ideology of the US government. Truman B. Douglass was one of these advocates. In this pamphlet that he authored, Douglass called attention to these horrible circumstances and compelled others to move against the unfair treatment of American citizens of Japanese ancestry.
