JAPANESE AMERICANS WWII
During WWII, Japanese Americans at the West Coast
Were taken to Intermittent Camps. In fact they were concentration camps. The aim was to control them, so they won’t help or organize actions to help prospective Japanese invasion of the US especially of the West Coast.
A gossip, lies and manipulated reports of one army
General helped to achieve this.
They were American citizens. Hard working dedicated to rule of law and least crime percentage was experienced in this ethnic group.
Their business were taken away from them, and given few hours to prepare their luggage.
They lost business, wealth and honor.
These proud citizens worked very hard to return previous times of prosperity.
After many years during Clinton’s presidency they were apologized and paid twenty thousand dollars.
This story is related to one of those persons.
My friend Adam interviewed and I did the camera work and editing the historical clips are obtained from government archives, and Japanese American Society.
