Japanese Internment >>
Questions to Ponder
Less than a year after the United States entered World War II against Japan, nearly all Japanese Americans living on the West Coast were imprisoned in interment camps.
1. Do you think it is possible that in some future situation, a racial or ethnic group of American citizens could be sent to detention camps like the Japanese were during World War II?
2. Can you think of any circumstances that would justify the mass arrest of a racial or ethnic group?
3. Can you think of anything similar that has happened to other racial or ethnic groups in American history?
