Howard Wang Period 2 Japanese Internment Questions 1. What were the constitutional issues? There were no court hearings, no due process, and no writs of habeas corpus 2. Why didn’t the USA also move German and Italian Americans to internment camps in large numbers? After the incident at Pearl Harbor, the US hated the Japanese more than the Germans or Italians- two groups that didn’t actually do anything to directly harm the US. The US blamed Japanese aggression on violent racial or national behavior, unlike the Germans and Italians who they blamed their behavior on the tyrannical rulers. 3. What were the cultural effects of internment on the families? Americans tried to undermine Japanese culture, such as serving non-Japanese food. As a result, Japanese tried to create an atmosphere of home by decorating their accommodations with pictures, flowers, and curtains, planting vegetable gardens, and setting up activities like sports clubs and art classes for themselves.

    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.
