Japanese internment

-Overcrowded-No plumbing-Long lines for food and bathroom use-Only allowed to bring a few possessions from home-Lived in barracks, small room cells with entire families living in one room-Often families got separated and put in different camps-Barbed wire perimeters-U.S. military guarded the perimeter-Attempted to mimic Japanese way of life, giving them newspapers, schools, medical care, and some interns did work for the government-Small portions of food lacking nutrients-2/3 of the campers were American citizens, 1/2 were children

The Beginning

-After almost 2 years after the signing of the Executive Order 9066, President Franklin D. Roosevelt rescinded the order in 1944. -The last internment camp was closed in 1945.-Interns could leave the concentration camps if they enlisted in the U.S. Army. Only 1,200 interns took the opportunity.-Over 5,000 renounced their citizenship after released from the camps-Only 10 people convicted of being Japanese spies, none were full Japanese-US Congress gave $20,000 to each of the 60,000 survivors-Civil Liberties Act of 1988 that acknowledged that a "grave injustice was done."

-February 19th, 1942 Roosevelt signed the Executive Order 9066 because he saw the Japanese in America as a threat fearing that they were spying for Japan-The order rounded up 120,000 Americans of Japanese heritage and put them into one of the 10 internment camps- The camps were in California, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arkansas-The order was fueled by farmers who competed against Japanese laborors, politicians who sided with anti-Japanese programs, and the public who was upset over by the Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor
