Japanese Internment education

In the last two sections we have explored new ways of learning about historic events. This website is dedicated to education people of all ages about Japanese Internment. It is made up of videos, audio files, articles, historical documents, and pictures. It is divided into sections for easier navigation. While the article we read in class examines the artistic side of life in the camps this website explores other areas as well as the context of the rest of the country. The videos on the website bring the camps to life as well as the history. In these videos is both personal stories and historical facts. They are short but each add something to the text on the page. Just as the article pointed out the way that survivors remembered, or chose not to remember their experiences, some of the videos follow survivors as they revisit where they were relocated. The website is a very useful tool for quick information.
