1984 in History
Currently in class, we are reading 1984, a story about a society controlled by a dictator. The citizens are forced to confine to a unified belief or die. In history, this can be related to the internment camps that the Japanese Americans had to live in for months. Influenced by fear, America forced all men and women of Japanese ethnicity to relocate to camps through out the west. One of the most famous was Topaz. All of the barracks were the same. The winters were harsh and the summers were dreadful. Driven by fear, the Japanese Americans had no choice but to obey the orders of the Americans. One of the darkest times for the Japanese Americans, all they had were each other and one small size suitcase. Like 1984, the Japanese Americans were prisoners, trapped inside a society that had strict laws and a uniformed way of living. But even inside these societies, there was always hope one day, life would be how it should.
