TELL THE STORY OF THE INTERNMENT OF THE JAPANESE


The current events and reactions to them cannot but remind us of another period of “moral panic” when “a certain race or ethnicity” was held accountable for the crimes committed by the few. The period in question is that between 1942 and 1945 when Japanese Americans were placed in camps for the duration of the war. Do your research and tell the story. While doing so, make sure to highlight the reasons, the immediate effects and the long term consequences.
