Adventure of the American Mind  

This site is dedicated as a resource for students and teachers in which to build activities centered on Internment camps used by the major combatants of World War II. The thrust of this endevor will be to analyze the similarites and differences between the Internment camps used by American, Russian, and Germans during the war. Most of the Internment population that will be highlighted include Japanese-Americans and European political prisoners. By using the sources provided on this site, my goal is that people will understand that the pain and humiliation that Internment Camps created knew no borders during the conflagration that was World War II.

This great collection is housed at the Library of Congress.
