Bill of Rights in Action

Victims of War

This Bill of Rights in Action looks at issues related to victims of war. The first article examines the internment of Japanese Americans in camps during World War II, the court case that upheld it as constitutional, and subsequent attempts to compensate those held in the camps. The second article looks at the "Rape of Nanking," the massacre of Chinese by Japanese troops just before World War II, and at the war crimes trial following the war. The last article examines how victims of World War II are attempting to get compensation through lawsuits.
