I feel your site is awsome! I feel it really tells important facts about Japanese-Americans during WWII!

This is a fantastic site. Then again, I'm bias... you have a photo of my mother and father on the website. My father was a member of the 100/442nd Regimental Combat Team. When my father intially started volunteering on the 100/442nd RCT "Go for Broke" Historical project in San Francisco back in the 1980's, he never had in mind that the beginnings of that exhibit would wind up in America's attic, The Museum of American History as the "A More Perfect Union" Exhibit. Thank you for using their "homecoming" photo. You honor their memory greatly and of all the individuals who just wanted to be call "Americans"... no hyphen, no country of origin... just Americans.

I think it was really sad that childrens were segregated and they had to go to the seperate school. Most japenese immigrants to the united states settled on the West Coast and worked in agriculture because they wanted to escape from the internment camps. Internment camps were large piece of land where the u.s built fence all around the land and he Japanese people had to stay inside the fence after the attack on the Pearl Harbor. On december 7, 1941 to december 11 the U.S took a lots of Japanese people to the custody. The president roosevelt set the executive prgram in order to limit official opposition to remove centered in the U.S justice department.

I think it was not really a bad idea, by put the Japanese in camp, because the americans his such being protective and wanted to protect their country and family.

My reaction was that the Americans didn't have to treat Japenese people like this.
