Storyboard Text

  • Executive Order 9066
  • Pearl Harbor was attacked on December 7, 1941, that set off a chain of events for the U.S. involvement into World War II. Also, it heightened the racial tension with Japanese Americans in the US.
  • On Februaury 19, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt signed the Executive Order 9066. The War Department created 12 restricted zones and designated anyone who they felt to be a harm into these areas.
  • Mostly Japanese Americans, but some germans and Italians living in the U.S.  were affected by this order. These numbers added up to over 120,000 by the end of the war. 
  • After the relocation notices were posted, the Japanese-Americans had one week to sell their homes, farms, shops, and all the belongings that they could not fit to take with them. 
  • The relocation camps were surrounded by fences, barbed wire, and armed men who shot anyone who attempted to leave. The Japanese-Americans lived in uninsulted barracks heated by a stove and slept on cots. They adapted to life behind the fences by organizing schools, churches, and newspapers.
  • In 1976, President Ford repealed the Executive order 9066 and apologized for the way the Japanese-Americans were treated. They all received $20,000 as a compensation for what they had suffered and given up.
