In pairs (or, as computers permit, individually or in groups), students view Video: Morale, which features internees speaking about the effects of internment on their morale. As a class, discuss:

•    How do the internees speak about the experiences of younger versus older internees? Point out to students that the interview subjects represent the younger internees, as most of the older men are no longer alive.

•    How do the internees speak about their internment experiences compared to the experiences of their families still in Europe?
