Fairly large numbers of Jewish refugees were interned as well by
Canada, which also interned its Japanese-Canadian population,
and under somewhat harsher conditions than the US did their
Japanese-Americans. The Jews, refugees >from Germany and occupied
countries, were interned in camps in the Maritime Provinces and
to my knowledge the British Commonwealth detainees were not
compensated or officially apologized to. My own apologies if I
am wrong about this. I don't know about Australia/New Zealand.
