Japanese Internment Website

One of the largest black eyes against the US was when we imprisoned Americans of Japanese descent during WWII and then upheld that right in Kormatsu v.US. Well here is a tremendous website detailing camp life, the background to the arrests and the impact of it today.  The site not only has the history, but also pictures and a large amount of video.  As an example here is information on Executive Order 9066 which allowed the internment as well as video.
