Korematsu case was to be heard by the courts (judges). In conclusion, African Americans and Japanese Americans both felt extreme racism and weren’t treated as equals. While one was fighting for equal rights overall over a long time period, Korematsu was fighting for the rights that were stripped during WWII. The U.S. fought WWII for democracy and freedom, but stripped the freedom of the Japanese Americans while African Americans “weren’t considered in American democracy.” It won’t be until 1946 that the last Japanese camp is closed and won’t be until 1964 that equality is established amongst all.

Everyone who fought in World War I had to be apart of the nightmare of war. Paul felt betrayed by people because what he thought war was like with patriotism and heroism was false, therefore shattering his dreamt experience. Since the beginning, Paul seemed to have matured and became more of a man unlike his childlike actions joining right from school. His experiences along with millions of others during this war caused change in society and perspectives on what happened.

Many of the internees probably did not have affiliations with the United States’ enemies in this war, but they still suffered from the prejudices held against them. Even those who did not live in the camps, but had an interned parent, indicated having similar psychological and health impacts as their relatives. Although the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 tried to restore the damages done to them, many imprisoned Japanese Americans died with injustice. While the struggles of the confined Japanese Americans seems unrepairable, this incident can help prevent future events similar to it from happening.
African Americans were expected to fight in a war for freedoms that were not even given to them in their own country. At times, they were even denied the ability to enlist in the Armed Forces. Although many African Americans found a new start in the many war towns, they were still discriminated against and still had to deal with segregation. Whites kept African Americans in the low un-skilled jobs. When Roosevelt signed the federal order for the Fair Employment Practices in the defense industries that called for equal opportunity and prohibited discrimination, the new changed caused a lot of problems.
When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, America went to war. Everyone, including African-Americans, wanted to be a part of the American Armed forces. Throughout the years of the war, numerous bills and acts were made in order to get rid of any discrimination problems in the Armed Forces. Furthermore, the whole country heard stories about certain African-Americans or African-American battalions going above and beyond the call of duty. However, the U. S. government did not tell the American public about everything that was going on.
The Holocaust continues to exist as a black mark in the history of Germany; through the government supported torture and extermination of both men and women, more than 6 million lost their lives. As a consequence of the collective tragedy for both sexes, there has been much debate pertaining to the focus of gender specific suffering in Holocaust literature; for this reason, the Holocaust accounts of women writers were largely ignored prior to the 1970’s. Many historians still refute disparities existed between the male and female experience. However, it is worth noting that the social, familial, and cultural expectations of men and women, both prior to and during the war, varied greatly. Moreover, these diverging roles promoted distinctively different coping, processing, and accounting of the tragedies stemming from the Holocaust.

While clarissa shows us how the war effected the upper class and specifacially women and septimus shows us how the war effected the soliders in the war their situations aren’t all that different. Both of the charters are trying to deal with life after the war and they both had an overwhelming fear of oppression. After the war people felt that theyre world had been completely shattered and they began to question the traditions of the nineteenth century. Even though the war had been over it stills haunts the characters of the novel and people during this time you can see this when Woolf writes: "For it was the middle of June.
The Ku Klux Klan, commonly referred to as the KKK or simply the Klan, dates back to the immediate days after the civil war according to Carnes Nightriding with the Klan (103). During the early days of their existence white southerners continued to discriminate African Americans even after the civil war. According to Jim Carnes Nightriding with the Klan the members of the organization sought to "preserve southern tradition" (106). When the people of the United States would try to unite racially segregated peoples, the Ku Klux Klan has done nothing but attempt to stop the progress by any means necessary, which even includes violence. Many feared that the KKK was too violent, General Meade was in charge of suppressing their power according to the Memphis Daily Avalanches' article "The Military and the Southern Secret Societies".

While Wilfred Owen’s poems carry heavy meanings and truths around World War I, I believe that the ideas he is trying to show us are still valid in today’s world. We often hear on the news about American or British soldiers that have been killed fighting in the middle-east, but we hear of these stories almost every day, and I think it is fair to say most people have become fairly de-sensitized to these stories. Wilfred Owen has helped me to realise that this is unacceptable. As societies we do not take any blame for the lives lost at war, but I think that we should be standing up for these soldiers, and demanding that no more lives be lost.

His film followed a realistic book that talked about soldiers and how the war deeply affected them. The main characters suffered from Post Dramatic Stress Disorder which is something that has affected soldiers all through history. The Great Raid also depicted war exactly as it occurred. It depicted how prisoners of war suffered in Japanese camps.
