pearl-harbor_0On december 7th 1941, the American naval base of Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese. The day after the bombardment, President Franklin D. Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan and Congress approved. Three days later, Japanese allies Germany and Italy also declared war on the United States, and again Congress reciprocated. More than two years into the conflict, America had finally joined World War II.

So that you understood better, I am going to present you an interview.

In this recording, we can hear a man with his daugther who speak about the attack of Pearl Harbor. The girl she can’t locate Pearl Harbor, indeed she doesn’t know because she is very young and she doesn’t know much about geography. She feels unconcerned about this attack but her parents aren’t Americans citizen yet, so, her father feels threatened and he anticipated trouble. He is worried and he feels they might be detained or even sent back to Japan. But, after speaking with his schoolteacher, she changes her mind. She feelts aware of her Japanese origins, she feelts threatened and nervous.
