(S9.E7.) WWII: Japanese Internment Camp Story


One of the ugly chapters of World War Two was how the Japanese-Americans were treated after Pearl Harbor. Internment camps were created for these U.S. citizens. They were taken from their homes, their businesses taken over by others, and the people shipped to these camps. Part of the reason was extreme fear about an invasion of the West coast. Another part was racism against those from Japan and other Southeast Asian countries. A student in our class suggested the song and music video. Many thanks to Elizabeth.

(S8.E13.) Chpt 6 World War Two Propaganda Posters


Propaganda posters were used by all the countries involved in World War Two to motivate people to take action. Some of them encouraged volunteering for active duty in the military. Others implored people to stay at their civilian jobs since they were essential to the war effort. The 20th century was defined by World War Two. Human history would have tragically changed if the Axis power had succeeded. And they almost did. A dozen major turning points decided the final outcome.
