Japanese Interment Camps


On February 19, 1942, Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order, which stated that any Screen_shot_2011-12-16_at_12.56.40_PM.png
were spread out around the west-coast. Some of there locations were in the following states;
California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arkansas. They took over 120,000
Japanese-Americans from their homes. If you just looked put you into on of the ten internment
camps. If you lived in the north you were not effected by this even if you were from the
Japanese heritage, they only forced Japanese-Americans from the west-coast. These
internment camps were a stable living place, none of the "inmates" were abused. Franklin D.
Roosevelt said that they still had all of their rights, just not their freedom. Freedom was not the
only quality of living that they lost. When they lost their freedom they also lost businesses, homes,
and families. Even though the Japanese-Americans were not abused at these camps they suffered
from severe economic losses, personal humiliation.In 1945 the Last Interment camp closed, the
Japanese heritage was no longer seen as a threat to the American nation. In 1988, 43 years after
the last Interment camp closed Congress finally apologized for their actions giving 20,000 to each
surviving Japanese-American that was effected.
