 In World War II, a handful of young Americans refused to be drafted from an American concentration camp. They were ready to fight for their country, but not before the government restored their rights as U.S. citizens and released their families from camp. It was a classic example of civil disobedience -- but the government prosecuted them as criminals and Japanese American leaders and veterans ostracized them as traitors. Journalist producer Frank Abe delves into the heart of the Japanese American conscience. Experience the choice faced by any group when confronted by mass injustice -- whether to comply or to resist (2000, 57 minutes).
Award-winning “Conscience and the Constitution” coming soon on 2-disc Special Edition DVD
