9066 to 9/11

Looks at the World War II-era treatment of Japanese Americans as seen through the contemporary lens of the post-9/11 world. As the U.S. government fights a "war on terrorism" its tactics and policies have caused concern for some Americans of Japanese descent, who were interned in concentration camps during WWII. No new concentration camps have materialized, but mass deportations and detentions, particularly of Arab and Muslim immigrants in America, have forced a comparison of the two experiences, revealing striking similarities.
