La familia Katase Tanaka: de la concentración durante la guerra al regreso a Sonora

Al inicio del año de 1942, las comunidades de inmigrantes que vivían en diversos países del continente Americano empezaron a vivir días aciagos. El ataque de la marina japonesa a la base naval de Pearl Harbor en diciembre de 1941 desató no solo la guerra entre Japón y Estados Unidos sino que significó la reclusión y persecución de los inmigrantes y sus familias en todo el continente. El gobierno norteamericano consideró a las comunidades de inmigrantes japoneses, que ya tenían más de 40 años de haber a…

Read Part 2 >> Japanese Immigrant Communities in the Era of Globalization The waves of immigration during the last third of the 20th century and the first two decades of the present century were driven by an intense exchange between Japan and Mexico in the areas of business and education. As mentioned, Japanese investment was the great driver of the flow of migrants during that period. It is also important to note that Japanese cultural industries began to develop a strong presence overseas through television programs and cartoons (now known as anime, or アニメ). One series in particula…

Over the past 125 years, since the first 34 workers were brought to Chiapas to help develop a coffee plantation, the path of migration has been paved with enormous difficulties.

Takeshi Morita: A Mexican Fisherman Imprisoned in U.S. concentration camps

The Japanese attack on the U.S. fleet in Hawaii on December 7, 1941 triggered war between the two countries. On this side of the Pacific, throughout the entire continent, that date also marked the beginning of a peculiar war against hundreds of thousands of Japanese immigrants living in numerous countries, who were promptly accused of being “foreign enemies.” In the United States, on the eve of that fateful day, Japanese Americans were preparing for the upcoming Christmas and New Year festivities. These immigrant communities were already well integrated into the U.S. economy and …
