When the U.S. entered World War II, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, over 100,000 Japanese and Japanese-American families were forced to relocate to internment camps located in the west. These families often lived in bare-minimum conditions, and many people lost personal property due to their move.
Surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards, half of the residents in the internment camps were children who would later grow up bearing the emotional and psychological scars of being removed from their previous homes.
What do you think about the statistic that 100,000 people were forcibly moved during the 20th century?
What do you think about the fact that George was fighting for a country that was restricting members of his own family just because of their ethnic background?
