Pearl Harbor was significant because 2403 Americans died and the result of the tragedy caused the United States to join the war.
No Japanese allowed here!
Not "Japs" Allowed!
FDR signs Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942. This order requires Japanese Americans to go to designated camps around the United States to "protect" them from espionage. This followed Pearl Harbor which occurred 2 months prior.
Many Japanese Americans were required to either sell their belongings or give them away because they were not able to take them with. This also included Japanese American businesses.
Because of Pearl Harbor and the Executive order from the president there was a large rise of racism towards Japanese Americans. Many people put up posters directed towards the Japanese Americans or obscured there property.
The camps kept Japanese Americans from the time of the Executive Order to the end of the war and in 1945 they were released. The camp conditions were poor and the rooms were full.
Following the war and years after the Japanese Americans who lived during the Japanese Internment were compensated about $1.6 billion ($3.3 billion today), but many Japanese never forgave the U.S. for their actions.
