President Franklin Roosevelt had profound, even heartbreaking decisions to make in the months after the Japanese attack on the United State's naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Among these was one that impacted American citizens of Japanese ancestry in ways that echo into the 21st century. 

From American Public Media, WHQR presents Order 9066, the story of our government's incarceration of more than 120,000 people of Japanese descent for the duration of World War II.  https://www.apmreports.org/order-9066
