During WWII, the struggle for tolerance, peace, and dignity was not confined to far-off battlefields. Following the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, a surge of anger and racism stripped over 100,000 Japanese Americans of their civil rights, forcing them into relocation camps. This is a compelling portrait of those events, the families who fell victim to public and political hysteria, and the extraordinary military unit which rose from this turmoil: the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the most heavily decorated unit for its size and length of service in our country’s history. “World War II: The Japanese American Experience” is excerpted from the program, “442: For the Future.”
