RD: The Heart Mountain Fair Play Committee, it seems to me, took a very, very high moral ground, and paid the consequences of it. At the time, they didn't achieve very much if they wanted to change, to change government policy. On the other hand, they left an important historical record and they raised important moral and legal issues, and one hopes that American society now treats dissent somewhat better than it did in the Second World War. And if it does, it has in part this whole experience of the Japanese American people, every aspect of it, to thank for that. The Fair Play Committee would have had more influence had more people known about it.
