  1. Thank you for taking the time to present this awful moment in history. I’ve studied the Japanese forced relocation, but this is the first time I’m ever seeing these pictures. Thank you again.

  2. Yes, there were a number who took their cases to the Supreme Court: Yasui, Hirabayashi, Korematsu, Endo. There were also a number who refused to serve in the military.
