Register for Webinar Wednesday — World War II “Internment Camps” and Mass Incarceration in the U.S. by Linda Harms Okazaki
After Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941, thousands of Japanese and Japanese Americans were incarcerated in “Internment Camps.” German, Italians, and Latin Americans were also interned.
