Smithsonian Interactive Exhibit on Japanese-Americans

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Here is a link to a really sweet (by sweet I mean interactive and amazing) online exhibit about Japanese-Americans during wartime. It has a lot of photos and audio chronicling the experiences of this group during a time when racial prejudice against the Japanese was at an all-time high. It has six sections, Immigration, Removal, Internment, Loyalty, Service and Justice. Amongst other things, it has a really interesting breakdown of the questionnaire that Japanese-Americans had to fill out upon their arrival at the internment camp. Check it out!
