    I think the correct term for the displacement of Japanese in the Seattle area is “Interment Camps” not “Concentration Camps.” The poor Aussie, Dr. Dunlop thinks we probably nuked our Japanese citizens in Seattle. No… we only did that in Japan.

    I got a feeling the Germans didn’t call them concentration camps either.

    Nina, thank you for the feedback and the reminder that it brings that I want to discuss this stuff. I didn’t talk about it in episode 15 because you don’t talk about the interview before it in a show and I wasn’t able to be part of the interview.

    I know some journalists have referred to Japanese internment camps as America’s Concentration Camps to be sensational. However, I think the accepted term is internment… especially in front of prison colonist… uh.. Aussies.

    It’s common for people to generalize similar concepts under similar terms, it’s also common for people to judge past actions based on currently common knowledge and values.
