Day of Remembrance for the incarceration of Japanese Americans

Today is a Day of Remembrance: the 75th anniversary of FDR's executive order to incarcerate Japanese Americans.

A bunch of articles are pointing out that that horrifying and shameful action is a reminder to us to resist today's Islamophobia, and that's very true.

But we should also remember it for its own sake, not only as a Never Again reminder. A hundred thousand people were imprisoned, torn from their lives and their homes and their work.

Here are some links, focusing on various different things.
