Most of the information was not new to me except for the kerosene baths; but what stuck out for me was when I learned about these things (I'm long past high school) and when I did not. I remember hearing about the internment of Japanese Americans at some point and practically disbelieving because although I had learned about WWII, and my dad was a WWII history buff, I had never even heard a whisper about the fear of Japanese Americans and their going to camps. Same thing with the residential schools for Native Americans. And I was frankly even more shocked to have stumbled upon a residential school museum a couple of years ago in MO that touted how wonderful their school was and the wonderful things they did for Native Americans. This, too, I read about as an adult and never learned about it in school.
