Italian Enemy Aliens During World War II: Evacuation from Prohibited Zones
Students read and discuss the Enemy Alien Evacuation Order. They perform research by reading newspaper articles from February 1942 as well as investigating available information on the Internet. Students work in groups to create a dramatization of a given situation related to the Evacuation Order. They select sides (for or against) over creating a prohibited zone for enemy aliens and participate in a debate of the issue.
