    When fear and paranoia run rampant“Give me your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to breathe free the wretched refuse of your teeming shoresend these the homeless tempest tost to me I lift my lamp beside the golden door” This excerpt from one of America’s most famous poems that was written in 1903 by Emma Lazarus is engraved on a bronze plaue and is mounted inside the lower level of the pedestal of the Statute of Liberty The Statute of Liberty and those evocative words greeted new immigrants at the turn of the last century as they entered New York harbor and Ellis Island about to begin new lives – and in most cases better lives – than those they had left behind Although described by the author as a love story Pilgrims of War unapologetically chronicles that uncertain and shameful period in American history when fear and paranoia was allowed to fester and run rampant within the US government resulting in the coercion mistreatment and removal of the most basic rights of immigrant Germans Japanese and Italians and their spouses and children living in the US in the immediate aftermath of Pearl Harbor and in the wake of America’s involvement in the Second World War Some had been living in the US for most of their adult lives and many were first generation Americans but that didn’t matter to the government as they were torn from their families herded like livestock onto buses and trains and taken to internment camps as prisoners of the US government until the war endedThis is the backdrop for Pilgrims of War Dr Magdalena Russo a gifted Italian surgeon and a member of the Italian upper class has left behind her husband and young daughter in Italy while she attends a medical conference Her trip is cut short when the US government seizes the ocean liner she is traveling in Everyone on board is declared a prisoner of war of the US and everyone including Magdalena are collected and first sent to an internment camp on Ellis Island Magdalena is subseuently sent to another camp in Fort Missoula and then again to another camp in Texas Life becomes even complicated when Magdalena learns that her beloved husband a respected professor has been imprisoned for treason back in Italy while their young daughter has done the unthinkable by joining the Nazi Lebensborn program She finds friendship in Manzini the captain of their ship Pilgrims of War is a story that is rich in history and a wonderful read Most of all though it’s a harsh reminder how mankind can turn on itself without real provocation fueled by nothing than misguided conviction and misplaced fear

    The book shines a light on a little known fact in American history During the Second World War after paranoia had sparked fears that US citizens were aiding various enemies the American government detained hundreds of thousands of Japanese German and Italian descendants many of which had lived in the country peacefully for years Taken away from their homes these people were forced to live in old military bases hastily converted into overcrowded prison camps Their story is told through the eyes of Doctor Magdalena Russo an Italian doctor on her way to Panama for a medical conference after the ship she is on is seized by the American Navy The passengers are subseuently transported to Ellis Island as prisoners of War Magdalena must adjust to life in a prison camp and cope with the uncertainty of not knowing when she will again see her family who struggle for survival in war torn Italy I found the book very interesting and historically well researched The author cleverly interweaves a lot of factual information about government policies and events of the time into the story However at times the focus of the book favors the rendering of historical facts at the cost of the love story it is supposed to be Overall this is an interesting story that flows well It sheds a light on a time in history that deserves attention perhaps to ensure it doesn’t happen again I recommend this book to fans of historical fiction or anyone who is interested in this period in history
