Japanese American Internment Camps

Life in the camps was hard. Some internees died from poor medical care and high levels of emotional stress they went through. Those taken to camps in deserts had to cope with extreme temperatures. If you tried to eascape you were shot right on the spot.The camps were guarded by military and Jap/Am who didnt follow the rules, were sent to the Tule Lake facility in the North California Cascade Mountains. In 1943 those who refused to take the loyalty oath were sent to Tula Lake and the camp was renamed a segregation centre.
