Drawing strong parallels between the treatment of Japanese Americans after Pearl Harbor (interned under Executive Order 9066) and U.S. Arabs and Muslims after September 11, 2001, Asians and Arabs deplore war's tendency to erode due process.
That 20-minute segment is accompanied by the now classic Something Strong Within (1994, 40 minutes), an award-winning collection of home movie footage from Japanese American internment camps. The two programs complement each other by conveying the relevance of historical experience to contemporary times.
