This paper explains that the history of the Japanese internment camps is becoming more widely studied; however, the internment of German-Americans, even some Jewish refugees, in the United States during WWII has not been highly publicized. The author tells the personal stories of some of these internees. The paper stresses that, although World War II is in the distant past, after 9/11, there were Arab-Americans who were detained in jails for quite some time for no reason. The United States must find the appropriate way of protecting the nation against security threats without losing sight of the liberties.
