The Incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II
Chapter TwentyOne. Chapter TwentyThree. Chapter TwentyFive. Chapter TwentySeven. Chapter TwentyNine. Chapter ThirtyOne. Chapter Thirteen. The United States viewed interned Issei and Nisei as prisoners of war. At four main internment camps, these individuals awaited hearings. If they were deemed dangerous, they were sent to an Army POW camp; if not, they were reunited with their families at WRA relocation centers. Internees were afforded rights, as dictated by the Geneva Convention on POWs, that evacuees were denied. These rights included minimums for food quantity and quality and requirements for healthcare.
The differences between relocation centers and internment camps were stark. In the relocation centers, evacuees adhered to strict rules and curfews.
About the Book
The food was excellent. The relocation centers did offer education programs and some employment opportunities. Evacuees also organized to create Japanese language classes and other programming to maintain their culture. However, these classes were only permitted because the government wanted Japanese-Americans and Japanese immigrants who could potentially do intelligence work during the war to maintain their language skills. Famously, in Tule Lake Camp, a strong self-identification with Japanese culture led to a creation of a pro-Japan group that later rioted and had its leaders sent to the Santa Fe Internment Camp.
It was not very far from where Dorothy McKibbin had her office at E. Palace Avenue. The WRA also commissioned photographers to document life at camps.
In , WRA photographer Dorothea Lange took photos at the Manzanar relocation c enter of the barracks being constructed and the uncertain early days of Japanese incarceration. In , photographer Ansel Adams undertook his own project to document life at Manzanar, taking mostly portrait photos of evacuees. A third photographer of Manzanar was evacuee and photographer Toyo Miyatake.
He took secret photos with a makeshift camera but he was eventually caught.

However, the camp director allowed him to take photographs openly. Following the end of the war, the Japanese-Americans were released and many returned home to find their goods stolen and properties sold. Mineta of San Jose and Robert T. Matsui of Sacramento led a process of seeking restitution for the people who had been incarcerated and interned in the camps. Their findings were published in in a report entitled Personal Justice Denied.
Widespread ignorance of Japanese Americans contributed to a policy conceived in haste and executed in an atmosphere of fear and anger at Japan. There have been memorialization and preservation efforts. The memorial depicts two cranes with barbed wires tying their wings. Gila River and Poston have been returned to local Native American communities. Jerome is now mostly private farmland.
Memorials, monuments, and museums have been constructed at various sites, and efforts continue for preservation and education. They were sent to either Manzanar or Minidoka relocation camp in Idaho. Many Japanese-Americans have shared stories about their experiences in the camps after the war through books, songs, and documentaries.
In , actor George Takei, who was incarcerated at Tule Lake, wrote and starred in Allegiance , a Broadway musical about life at the incarceration camps. Controversy endures today regarding the incarceration and internment of Japanese-Americans under Executive Order Some Manhattan Project veterans were critical of the relocation and internment camps.
As such, they were never charged with crimes or received trials. The WRA was in charge of evacuees.
