Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'"The Syonan Sinbun" reports Tokyo as saying that "the maltreatment and petty annoyances to which Nipponese internees are subjected in Great Britain and the USA are in sharp contrast to the warm, sympathetic treatment extended by the Nipponese to enemy nationals and prisoners of war." Why put this sort of rubbish in the local paper, when the inhabitants know quite well how WE have been treated?'
