Thank you for such a informative look. I am in college and taking History. I had never even heard of the Japanese Interment camps until 2 weeks ago. And now I view these photos and read the captions and feel more than I would have from just a text book alone.
Thank you for enlightening me and making me aware of me past.

I don't think it's good

I grew up during ww2 and have always felt that the Japanese Americans got a raw deal during that war, let's hope this never happens again!

ITS NOT ABOUT PREJUDICE ITS ATCUALLY PRETTY SMART CORRECT YOUR MISTAKE AND MAKE SURE THEY DON'T HAPPEN AGAIN. IT'S LIKE TODAY ABOUT OSOMA BIN LADIN OF AND THIS DUMMIES. I'M JUST SAYIN, LEARN FROM YOUR MISAKES WE HAVE LOST ALOT OF AMERICANS BECAUSE OF INSIDE TRADERS [traitors?], BY NOT CHECKING,SEE WHATS UP ,AND POSSIBLE LET THEM GO. I'D RATTER HAVE EVERYTHING CHECKED OUT AND CONFIRMED THAN WAKE UP TO HEA[r] TO LOSS OF A FREIND OR RELATIVE,OR MABE NOT WAKE UP AT ALL.

Hi, here in New Zealand we also had internment camps. I was too young to know this had happened and it was not widely publicised either. My neighbour was put into one of the camps, when he came out he no longer spoke to any white person. He was a gentle man of half european and half Japanese descent - he lost something of himself in that camp. Why do we do this to each other? Judged by looks, not by honour. It amazes me really, we talk about religious freedom, political freedom, sexual freedom - but we never talk about freedom from terrorism. Tell me someone, how do you tell the difference between a terrorist and a non terrorist? Are they Asian? Black? White? Spanish? German? Jewish? I just can't tell - does that make me ignorant? I imagine I would have to become a politician to be able to make a judgement? (tongue in cheek)
