There were numerous attempts to make Louie and Miné feel invisible while they were in the internment and prisoner of war camps. One attempt was against Miné who, despite being a loyal citizen of the United States, was forced to live in an isolated internment camp. The article “The Life of Miné Okubo” states, “Finally, the presence of armed guards in the camps led to tragedy in a few cases when internees were killed for not obeying orders” (The Life of Miné Okubo, 5). Other Japanese Americans were killed for not obeying orders when they should not even be forced into camps. This instills much fear in Miné, as to be expected, making her feel even more invisible.
During wars, POW camps (prisoner of war camps) have been prevalent in housing soldiers from the opposing side in a general area where they can be monitored and accounted for, for years. However, many POW camps were conducted off the grid and weren’t registered with the Red Cross so many prisoners were counted as missing or dead in action. These secret camps were often execution camps or interrogation camps to gain information from captured soldiers about unknown devices, planes, and weapons. It was two of these secret camps and luckily one non-secret one that Louis Zamperini found himself in during the biography of his life in the novel Unbroken written by Laura Hillenbrand. The first of three important camps that Louis found himself in

According to Floyd, “The detainees became prisoners of war.” This one line describes the harshness of the inhuman approach that America took in the unwarranted fear of the Japanese. Helen Brill’s account recalled how she came to be teacher at an internment camp in Manzanar. The conditions were less than ideal. The floor was the place to sleep before the residents were given cots stuffed with straw. The students were not even allowed film to take pictures for their yearbook.
The harsh conditions of the SHU are what made the prisoners decided to nonviolently protest, which further proves the presence of inmate-balance theory. In conclusion, the California hunger strike, led by Todd Ashker, was brought on by the harsh conditions that inmates face while indefinitely imprisoned in solitary confinement. The unfair practice, decided by Judge Thelton Henderson in 1995, was something the prisoners couldn’t do outright to stop, so they turned to non-violent hunger strikes. This is concrete example on why the inmate-balance theory was present in the California hunger strike of 2013- giving confirmed gang members indefinite life sentences in solitary confinement was too harsh, thus needing

The German enforcers themselves are not mentioned beyond what they order and when they stand alongside Mengele. This may be an effect of how he saw life within the camps, where the Germans were often unknown, negative embodiments that forced them to labour. Wiesel also speaks of his distaste for the Schutzstaffel by revealing hate for the morning bell that rings when there is work to be done. By using the bell as symbolism, he shows that the Schutzstaffel are hated for what they force the prisoners to do.This exemplifies the poor state of Wiesel’s group, the

According to The Holocaust Explained, “In Nazi Germany after 1933, and across Nazi controlled Europe, between 1938 and 1945, concentration camps became a major way in which Nazi imposed their control (Holocaust Explained, 1)”. The first concentration camps were set up for Polish prisoners and officials. The camps were labor camps where the detained would be forced to do grueling work with harsh, long hours.
