This timely exhibit from the National Museum of American History (NMAH) "explores a period of U.S. history when racial prejudice and fear upset the delicate balance between the rights of a citizen versus the power of the state. Focusing on the experiences of Japanese Americans who were placed in detention camps during World War II, this online exhibit is a case study in decision-making and citizen action under the U.S. Constitution." The exhibit combines music, text, images, and personal stories in its main section, the Story Experience. The other three sections of the site allow visitors to share their responses (Reflections), search the Smithsonian collection (Collection Search), and follow their interest beyond the site (Resources). The site is available in both a media-rich form and a "printable" form, for users with slower connections.
