In Good Conscience: Supporting Japanese Americans during the Internment

Shizue Seigel

"Shizue Seigel has written profoundly moving accounts about the extraordinary individuals who acted our of conscience when others did not.”

   —Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, Farewell to Manzanar

“...Brings to light the best kind of brave, ordinary heroics. It makes your heart feel proud of what humans of conscience can do even in cruel times.”

    —Jack Kornfield, Spirit Rock Meditation Center

        The Wise Heart: A Guide to the Universal Teachings of          Buddhist Psychology 

Vivid portraits of two dozen teachers, ministers and just plain folks who stood up against the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. Who were they? What did they do? What were the consequences?  In Good Conscience brings new insight into what transforms ordinary people into extraordinary advocates for justice and compassion.
