WW II Mistreatment of Italian Americans

I thought you might br interested in an article by Steve Chawkins, in the Los Angeles Times August 23rd issue.
August 23, 2010
This is the opening line…”Legislature passes resolution expressing ‘deepest regret’ for the wartime internment, curfews, confiscations and other indignities that thousands of Italian and Italian American families faced.”
Read about how when “Mike Maiorana was a boy during World War II, his family was like a lot of others in his Monterey neighborhood.”
It is poignant and virtual, and I suggest you read it. We tend to forget what the ravages of war have upon people. Do you see anything like it today?

Many boats were seized from Italian residents of California
