Students continue to address the question of how war affects individuals and societies. Primarily, they have studied how WWII affected Louie Zamperini. In this lesson, students study how the Japanese culture and society of that era affected Japanese guards who were in charge of prisoners of war. Since Louie’s story hinges on the events described during his imprisonment in Japanese POW camps, this lesson seeks to provide students with background knowledge as to why prisoners were treated in such a manner.
