Story of the life of Japanese-Americans during World War II in United States
On December 7th of 1941 Pearl Harbor US Navy was attacked by Japanese airmen. The event was surprising for all Americans because they were in neutrality. The event caused the death of hundreds of Americans.
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt gives a memorable speech where he announces the entry of the United States into the war. "A day that will live in infamy". Then he prepares project Manhattan.
After President Roosevelt 's speech, US soldiers prepare for revenge and attack constantly the Japanese Empire, the US has entered the war very impetuous and factory workers are at full employment, the US is getting out of the Great Depression. The most productive era of the US in war supply exports.
Mean while back in the United States, Japanese Americans are send by orders of the president and by the social pressure to interment camps away from home and disposed of all their belongings. Japanese-Americans where people either born in Japan with US residency or have been born in US but have a Japanese ancestry.
The conditions in the camps where that people here had to live without privacy, go to the bathroom, sleep and talk, do normal activities, or have a religion practice. The soldiers later realized that Japanese Americans where good people and they where loyal to the country they liven in, but they kept them for over three years not feeding them what they wanted, after a while the soldiers let them cultivate rice or any other food that could help them continue with their diet and traditional meals.
Japanese Americans were allowed to go home after the war ended in 1945, but social pressure had not changed very much, their homes weren't in good conditions and their belongings had disappeared, Yet this tragically historical event of Japanese-Americans in internment camps is something the US must be ashamed of.
