Storyboard Text

  • Pearl Harbor was bombed on December 7th, 1941, which had led to America declaring war on Japan and joining WW2. It also gave rise to tension in America between Japanese Americans and americans.
  • About two months after the bombing of Peral Harbor President Roosevelt had signed the Executive Order 9906 that had arranged to move all Japanese Americans to internment camps.
  • Before being moved to internment camps Japanese sold their businesses and homes for a fraction of their value but ended up losing it all in the end anyway
  • In the internment camps, they would have to squeeze into one room full of people to eat and there wasn't any heat for the winter when it would drop below 25 degrees it wasn't great conditions.
  • Civil liberty advocates brought lawsuits but the supreme court refused to overturn the internment orders. In 1944 they started to reles\ase internees but the majority stayed locked up. 
  • In 1945 they were all released. Some families were fortunate to bounce back into a normal life while others had to start over from nothing and some had to evict strangers from there homes. In 1948 federal government had distributed 37 million dollars in reparations. 40 years later Japanese Americans by legislation got the government to pay an additional 20 thousand dollars.
