Dimas, Peter 1 Peter Dimas 8 March 2008 English 102-Lawrence Japanese-American Internment In the past century, there have been many occurrences of racism. There was the Apartheid in South Africa, and also genocide in Rwanda. The holocaust, caused by Nazi Germany, was among the most serious of these schisms. Under the racist, nationalist Nazi regime and its leader Adolf Hitler, Germany began to expand its territory in the early 1930s. Germany kept expanding its territory unchecked, until it attacked and occupied Poland in late 1939. Though wishing to remain isolationist, Great Britain and France promised Poland that they would come to their aid if the attack was unprovoked. In this war, millions of Jews and other minorities were sent to concentration camps and killed. This brutal confinement was atrocious behavior and an act of great crime, but another event during the war also took place: Japanese-American internment. The event was not nearly as horrific as the Holocaust in Europe, but it is often overlooked. The detainment can also be compared to the criminalization and detainment of Arabs and Muslims today, especially after 9/11 in 2001.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
