Executive Order 9066; We Must Remember

The JMC Journal already linked to this article today, but it's worth linking to again.

The article is in remembrance of the signing of Executive Order 9066 by FDR, the direct result of which was the Japanese internment. The order was signed 65 years ago today.

Prof. Gotliffe, who teaches WWII & the Press at SJSU writes:

Former internees are a constant source of inspiration and a manifestation of what is the best in the human spirit when they boldly and emotionally tell their tales.

They fervently hope that the rest of us are not only willing to listen, but are willing to speak up and act.
