Pearl Harbor on

December 7, 1941, why do you think many Americans were suspicious of Japanese Americans?

slide3
Many people were afraid that Japanese Americans that lived

on the West Coast might be

acting as spies helping

Japan attack the U.S.

*Many Japanese Americans were fishermen…What might this mean?

relocation
Relocation

On February 19, 1942, President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066. This forced Japanese Americans to move from their homes to “internment” camps.

This was to keep them from spying bymonitoring their lives.

“Yellow Peril” became rampant throughout the U.S.

slide5
11,000 Japanese families had to sell their homes and businesses to relocate to these camps. Evacuees were allowed to take only what they could carry. What they couldn’t sell was just left for the taking.
slide6
Japanese Americans were put on buses and shipped to one of 10 relocation centers around the United States.
slide7

The barracks were surrounded by barbed wire and overseen by high wooden watchtowers. Privacy was almost nonexistent. Evacuees tried to make the best of it by living their lives with some degree of normalcy. Schools, libraries, sports teams, churches, and Americanization classes were created.

slide8
Originally, FDR considered the relocation “legal” under constitutional powers granted to the president during times of war.

The Supreme Court supported this claim in the case of

Korematsu vs. U.S.

Later, this was overturned and all camps were closed by early 1945.

But did these feelings just go away???

an apology
