More from Hirabayashi's obituary, January 2012
“When my case was before the Supreme Court in 1943, I fully expected that as a citizen the Constitution would protect me,” Dr. Hirabayashi wrote in “The Courage of Their Convictions.” “Surprisingly, even though I lost, I did not abandon my beliefs and values. And I never look at my case as just my own, or just as a Japanese American case. It is an American case, with principles that affect the fundamental human rights of all Americans.”
