I watched, with great interest, “The War” on PBS.

Yes, the way the Japanese-American citizens were treated in early 1942 was dreadful. Their living conditions were not exactly ritzy, but they certainly weren’t concentration camps, as they were called in that program.

Some years ago, our government paid $20,000 to those citizens who were affected. Did the Japanese government ever contribute anything to those they kept, tortured and starved in their real concentration camps?

Some allies.
