Role of the U.S. Supreme Court -violation of civil liberties is seen in WWII just like in WWI -Japanese-Americans challenge constitutionality of the curfew, the evacuation, and their confinement. A. Hirabayashi v. U.S. (1943) -Challenged the idea of the curfew -Applied only against Japanese-Americans -Found to be constitutional by the Supreme Court; okay to do in times of war -Overturned about 4 years after Korematsu was overturned B. Korematsu v. U.S. (1944) -Challenged the evacuation order -Found to be constitutional by the Supreme Court; okay to do in times of war -Overturned in 1984; found government misconduct; prosecutors withheld evidence C. Endo v. U.S. (1944) -Decided the same day as Korematsu -Challenged the fact that once you confined someone, you have to tell them what the charges are against them; you can’t just take someone to jail for no reason -Won her case; Supreme Court says it’s only okay to confine someone for a little while but you have to tell them what they’re being charged -1988: Congress passes a reparations bill; give an apology; says it was a violation against civil liberties; pass a bill issuing payment of $20,000 to each of the survivors of the internment camp; cost the government about $1 billion ______________________________________________________________________________ World War II Diplomacy and the Origins of the Cold War -non-shooting war that lasts from 1945-1989; longest war -fought between the U.S. and Soviet Union -roots in WWII I. War in Europe A. The Big Three Alliance: United States, Great Britain, Soviet Union -Franklin Roosevelt (U.S.); Winston Churchill (Great Britain); Joseph Stalin (Soviet Union) are the leaders; regularly meet to plan war strategies -riddled with tension & distrust -Defeating Hitler will take priority B. Opening the Second Front in Europe -1941-1942: Soviets fighting Germany alone in Europe; Stalin is pushing for the “Second Front”; wants major engagement in Western Europe -FDR is anxious to get involved in Europe; Persuaded by Churchill that we’re not ready for a front in France, let’s start in North Africa where Germans are fighting -Stalin is angry; North Africa campaign won’t help him -Nov. 1942: Americans invade North Africa; region is secured for the Allies by May 1943 -Go up the boot of Italy to continue the fight; Stalin is upset again; Soviets are bearing the brunt of the German war machine -June 6, 1944: D-Day; major invasion of continental Europe (Normandy) -By August 1944, Paris is secured; liberated; Nazis are in retreat -Battle of the Bulge: greatest land battle during European conflict; Dec. 1944-Jan 1945 C.

(due to discrimination/racism towards Japanese) -Was weapon a warning for the Soviets? A. Background -begins in 1930s -scientists who had fled to the U.S.; wrote to Roosevelt they were worried about Germans creating a super-bomb; Roosevelt received this in 1939 -Germans had access to uranium B.
