The Japanese Internment Camps officially closed in March, 1946. Over 110,000 people of Japanese descent had been forced to live in the camps since 1942, when President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9060 to imprison them. When it was over, Japanese American citizens were only given $25 and a ticket back to their homes.
