Japanese Internment Art Will Not Be Sold to the Highest Bidder It took the threat of a legal injunction, but a rare collection of arts and crafts from Japanese-American internment camps will not be auctioned off after all. After Pearl Harbor, 120,000 Japanese-Americans — two thirds of whom were citizens — were held in 10 so-called "relocation camps" until the end of World War II. During internment, they produced a variety of objects, 450 of which were collected but never exhibited. We hear about them from Greg Kimura, president and CEO of the Japanese-American National Museum here in Los Angeles.
Human Rights in the era of Donald Trump President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said today the US might pull out of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council.
