The Japanese Americans were treated unfairly during their captivation in the internment camps. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought the US into the second World War making the Japanese people an easy target for hate and suspicion. The American government forced all Japanese Americans into internment camps that were extremely cramped and unsanitary. The anti-Japanese propaganda influenced by the raging war just outside America, fueled Americans with hatred and distrust towards these immigrants which in turn made the engagement of the Japanese people, as well as culture such an easy feat. The United States was launched into WWII on December 7, 1941, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.
Connectedly, due to the behavior of the Irish, the newspapers painted the Irish as caricatures which caused citizens to fear the Irish and react violently to their increasing numbers. Yet, due to the issue of slavery, as the author states, the Irish issue took a back seat to the Civil War, and when the Irish showed bravery in many important battles, they were accepted as equals. In addition, The History Place continues to talk of the Irish immigrants in “Gone to America: The Rise of the Irish” as a hardworking labor force that worked in several different fields which pushed America to greatness after the American Civil War. In a country with little to no government regulation, the author concedes that Irish workers were a real force in industrial reformation as they built unions and got basic
“The first concentration camps were made to detain people without trial, usually under harsh conditions.” (www.theholocaustexplained.org) The Nazis did this because they discriminate and hate the Jews. “German authorities established camps to handle the masses of people arrested as alleged subversives.” (www.ushmm.org) Germany blamed the Jews for their loss of World War I. “Concentration camps held two purposes, these purposes were to demoralize and dehumanize the prisoners.” (www.owlspace-ccm.rice.edu) The Nazis tortured them and made them break on the inside. It was sad to be taken to a concentration camp because it meant that it was the end of your life.
The meatpacking industries carelessness towards their workers are physically endangering them daily. “Men who used knives on the sped-up assembly lines frequently lost fingers. Men who hauled 100-pound hunks of meat crippled their backs” (“Upton Sinclair’s”). Through the repetitive endangerment of these businesses’ workers it has highlighted the industry’s unnatural greed and lack of empathy. These damages that are inflicted on their workers can be critical, life-changing or even lethal.
“At this point he was mainly concerned with domestic politics and showed few signs of the internationalism for which he later became famous” (Kennedy, John F.).

The Jews went through many harsh events at the concentration camps that they were forced to go to. The concentration camps were extremely tortuous for these people. The living conditions were unbearable and the forced work was tremendously exhausting for them. They were starved to death and also killed in the gas chambers if they weren 't good enough.

Yet, they will snatch it out of an immigrants hands, if that means they will live a more satisfied life. Imagine this, a Latino immigrant and a American citizen walk into a job interview, they have same job experience but only one of them has the ideal immigration status on their resume. Who receives the job? Racial profiling is a serious case, because one must not be judged by their race but by their personality and well-being.

However, what they fund in America was a nation of opportunities surrounded by poverty and misery. Sacco and Vanzetti were trialed because as many other Americans, they believed that what was happening in the US was unjust. In other words, one America was getting all the benefits of the flourish economy, while the other one was dying for malnutrition. America was deeply divided between the ones who were part of the capitalist dream, and the ones who did not want to conform to that world. For this reason, in the days after the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti, one of the most famous American novelist of that time, John Dos Passos, wrote, “all right we are two nations.” He divided in words what the what the American dream had divided in practice.
The false promises (made by dictators) gave weakened countries hope that one day, they will be powerful again. The economic problems--after World War I--left the European countries extremely weak. Italy, for example, had industrial and agricultural workers staged strikes. The middle class started to support Mussolini’s fascist movement, in fear of the strikes from the lower class. Moreover, the middle-class did not like socialism and communism, making Fascism very compelling.
The Italian leader, called Mussolini got very angry and blamed the Greek government for the murder. He demanded them to pay a compensation and to execute the murderers. In the meantime, he bombed and invaded Corfu. The greeks didn 't have any idea of who the murder was, so they asked the League for help.

homefront. Japanese-Americans were unfairly put into camps by their fellow citizens against their will. The large number of Italian-Americans felt scared to demonstrate their political views, and their rich culture was squashed by the war effort. Finally the American citizens obtained a twisted view of Japanese, Italian, and German people. These things all contributed to an unnecessarily bad mood in the United States during World War
