These 30 WWII Photos From Japanese Internment Camp Were Censored And Now Everyone Can See Them

In 1941 Pearl Harbour grew the vistum of a devasting surprise attack by Japanese personnels. After decades of being on the edge of struggle with Japan, the two attacks pushed the US to join World War II. Not only did this attack took thousands of lives but also provoked racial prejudices towards Japanese-Americans which led to mass ‘evacuation’ of around 1200,000 people.

On February 19, 1942, only a couple several months after the attack, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order to extradite and incarcerate all Japanese-Americans. Thousands of people, many of whom were born in the US, were forcing them to abandon their houses, businesses, farms, and owneds. They were loaded onto buss with simply as many things because they can carry with no knowledge of where they’re extending and how long they’re staying there.

A photographer Dorothea Lange who is probably best known for her photo named Migrant Mother was hired by the US government to document the removal. The photographer perfectly captivated the ravaging instants of Japanese-Americans leaving their age-old lives behind and entering into the unknown. However, members of the military wasn’t happy with Lange’s opposing opinion of the internment camps. The photo were seized from her and exclusively made public in 2006. Today we finally have the opportunity to look back at this particular minute in history and consider for our selves how the living conditions of the Japanese-Americans were changed forever.
