Civil Rights of Japanese-American Internees

Prompted by a viewing of Emiko and Chizu Omori’s Rabbit in the Moon, a documentary about the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, high schoolers examine a series of documents, including the Bill of Rights and the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They summarize and share what they have read, and then write a reflection about whether or not the US government was justified in any of its actions toward Japanese Americans.
