Citizens Behind Barbed Wire: The Japanese Relocation and Democratic Ideals in Total War. Teacher and Student Manuals.
Focusing on the forcible relocation of West Coast Japanese-American citizens during World War II, the unit poses the question: Can democratic ideals and processes survive the conditions of total war? Some aspects of this episode considered are: public and official reactions to the Pearl Harbor attack; racial antipathies underlying the decision for relocation; and the consequences of relocation not only for those interned, but for all Americans, whose civil rights are threatened by the Constitutional precedents it set. Designed primarily for college-bound students, the unit is also suitable for above-average junior high students. (See SO 000 161 for a listing of related documents.) (Author/SBE)
