Contribution Type Sole-authored
Journal TypeJapan
Volume, Issue, Page pp.157-194
Details This paper is a final report documenting the author’s 2-year research project on Japanese nationals who were interned by British colonial authorities on the British Gold Coast (present-day Ghana) during WWII. The author reviewed official and private documents at the Public Record and Archives Administration Department of Ghana (the former Ghana National Archives; hereafter, “PRAAD”) in Accra and Sekondi, as well as in the British Library, St. Pancras and the Tyne and Wear Archives in the United Kingdom, to ascertain the number of Japanese internees, their backgrounds, and how they were treated by the British colonial government during their internment.
