The entire question of the Japanese imprisonment in Manzanar is disturbing at so many levels, but the most disturbing detail is the way in which the guards and camp administrators take away all sense of propriety and dignity from the prisoners, especially from the elders who are normally revered, respected, and cared for in Japanese society.  The fact that the actions were completely inappropriate combined with the real lack of humanity is a disturbing, almost evil action on the part of the Americans.
