World War II Era found 15 stories, showing stories 6-10

I belive that world war two was one of the worst wars we could have possibly have face besides the wars that we are having right now with iraq

Not all of the japenese should have been detained. Only the ones with criminal records.
A six year old child is not a threat to the United States.

due to my age I just missed being able to enlist in war #2 but followed it closely. It still amazes me that
the "brass" ignored all of the warnings
that Japan was attacking long before they hit. All
of the real history books acclaim the true story even if the government denies it.The U.S.A.
made movies also show what idiots they were which accounted for so many deaths.

I AM A YONSEI, 4TH GENERATION JAPANESE AMERICAN. MY GREATGRANDFATHER CAME FROM KOBE, JAPAN IN 1900 AND WAS IN THE US CENSUS OF 1920 AND WAS UNDER HOUSE ARREST IN 1940'S BUT WITH A FRIENDLY FBI MAN. HE WAS ALSO A PROMINENT PERSON IN PHILIDELPHIA AND HELPED TO BUILD A STATUE AT THE ART MUSEUM. I ALSO SERVED IN US ARMY. I UNDERSTAND THAT IN THOSE DAYS AND TIMES THE EMOTIONAL RESPONSE BY AMERICA AFTER JAPAN ATTACKED. SIMILAR ONE TODAY IS FELT FOR TALIBAN AND MUSLIMS. THE DIFFERENCE TODAY IS AMERICA HAS TRIED TO DO MORE, DO A BETTER JOB AT RESPECTING RIGHTS. I CAN CERTAINLY APPREICATE HR422 AND THE CIVIL LIBRITIES ACT OF 1988. I ENJOY THIS WEB SITE. BEST WISHES TO YOU ALL.

It concerns me that the Smithsonian has only thought it appropriate to include the Japanese American internment experience, and to exclude the German American and Italian American internment episodes.
