How much were the Japanese paid in reparations for being held in the internment camps during WW2?
Payments of $20,000.00 each began in 1988 when President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. Payments continued in 1992 when President George H. W. Bush signed into law the Civil Liberties Act Amendments of 1992.
The play 'The Crucible' shows characters being punished harshly based on baseless accusations that they are dangerous to society. Similarly, Japanese American were detained during World War II for no other reason than being of Japanese descent.
What was the basis of the Supreme Court finding the internment of Japanese prisoners constitutional?
It being a time of war, security of the nation came first. Although hasty on the part of the US, Japanese residents were rounded up and placed in internment camps.
The government placed Americans of Japanese descent in internment camps after the attack on Pearl Harbor because they were suspected of being spies, sending signals back to Japan.
Was it appropiate for Japanese being sent to the internment camps after the booming of pearl harbor?
Was it Politically Correct? : no was it an effective strategy: yes
The Japanese Internment camps were so difficult because the Japanese people being kept there were American citizens. They weren't treated especially harshly, but the fact that Americans were being kept against their will was disturbing
Because the North American government decided it didn't want to risk sensitive information being passed along to the Nazis by German spies living there. The Japanese faced a similar situation during WWII.
The Japanese paid some reparations as per the Treaty of Peace with Japan however they committed so many horrific and revolting war crimes that no reparations could possibly come close to compensating for them. Also no real prosecutions of the Japanese happened after the war and some Japanese war criminals are still honored as heroes. One even being elected as their prim minister. To this day they refuse to admit to, or apologize for, their… Read More
The Cowra internement camp in New South Wales was a complex of four smaller camps, each one being allocated in turn to Japanese, Italians, Koreans and Indonesians Prisoners-of-war during World War 2.
The Canadian's had as much risk as the United States did concerning the Japanese attacking or invading their nation. They too jumped on the "bandwagon" thinking their Japanese Canadians could be spies helping the Japanese. So they put their Japanese into internment camps as well. Some Canadians were very angry at the Japanese too. Hawaii was one of their vacation spots and the US Navy/Canadian Royal Navy were at risk of being attacked again.
During WW II, the Nazis and the Imperial Japanese both inflicted horrible cruelties upon the people whom they placed in their various camps, the main difference being that the Nazis intended that no one in the camps would survive, while the Japanese were not specifically trying to kill everybody in their camps, although they did mistreat them terribly.
The Americans thought the Japanese-Americans were in contact with the Japanese that planned the pearl harbor attack so they had them sent to interment camps but in actuallity the Japanese-Americans weren't in contact with Japan at all (maybe family) but not the military so they were sent without being able to testify or prove their innocense before being sent unfairly.
Buy war bombs, sell their property at a loss, join the armed forces, and go to court and fight for their rights.
During World War II, after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, and the US declared war with Japan, the US sent Japanese-Americans to internment camps. The US did thisin order to prevent any Japanese-Americans from being able to support the Japanese during the war. Theese internment camps, unlike Nazi concentration camps, did not mass murder their inhabitants, and they had much better conditions than the Nazi camps, but they were similar to the Nazi concentration camps… Read More
Around 4.2% of Japanese Population died during World War 2. 2.8% being Military Deaths and 1.4% being Civilian Death.
Japanese-American internment was the forced relocation and internment by the United States government in 1942 of approximately 110,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese residing along the Pacific coast of the United States to camps called "War Relocation Camps" (a polite way of saying Concentration Camps) in the wake of Imperial Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, the United States was gripped by war hysteria. This was especially… Read More
The Japanese internment camps were sort of like special prisons for Japanese-Americans during World War II. The camps weren't very nice, nor was being imprisoned in them, but at the same time, the internees were not tortured or otherwise severely harmed. Still, it's not one of America's proudest moments. They were intended to keep Japanese-Americans on the West Coast from assisting the Japanese military if it ever invaded the USA. The Nazi concentration camps were… Read More
The Executive Order 9066 sent over 100,000 American Japanese to internment camps. The American Japanese people lost their homes, businesses, possessions and legal freedom. FDR issued this order because American foolishly believed they were spies for Japan. Later on the Supreme Court ruled this order as being unconstitutional. Canada did the same thing to the Canadian Japanese.
WW 2 war reparations are still being made by Germany with the majority directed towards individuals (including US citizens). Reparations include payments from German companies
Around 3.12 Million Japanese people were killed during World War 2, 2.12 Million being Military Deaths and 1 Million being Civilian Deaths.
== == There were no war reparations after the Second World War and Britain, being one of the winners, certainly would not have had to pay them if there had been.
the 442nd during its first activation was notable for being the most decorated infantry regiment in the United States Army, it also was made up largely of Japanese Americans from Hawaii. Members from the mainland were much less common due to their internment in camps at this time, and thus understadably less enthusiasm
We (U.S.A) were in the middle of World War II, which threatened not only our free way of life but our lives as well. The attackers, the Axis, was composed of three countries: Germany, Italy and Japan. There was concern that Japanese people (living in the U.S.) might have loyalties to Japan rather than to the U.S. and thus present a danger. It is now generally believed that it was wrong for us to have… Read More
A person can train their Japanese Spitz dog by sticking to a schedule. Being repetitive is also important during the training process.
Probably Japanese-Americans. Although they were in almost all cases totally loyal to the United States, public sentiment was against them. The U.S. government even rounded them up and put them in internment camps during the war, even though there was no evidence they had been disloyal. Yet despite being kept in camps (where conditions were not the best) and regarded with suspicion by average Americans, many Japanese-Americans volunteered to fight for the United States during… Read More
Probably because they are perceived not hold allegiance to either nationality. The same problem occurred in the second world war with Japanese & German Americans not being trusted by the majority of Americans. Therefore they were put in to internment camps.
Unfortunately, prejudice against Asian people had been around for a long time in the United States. When the Chinese arrived in the mid-to-late 1800s, there were newspaper references to the "Yellow Peril." Today, Asians are fairly well integrated into American society, but during the era before World War II, many Americans still were not comfortable with other races, and that included Chinese and Japanese people. But most Americans did not pay much attention to what… Read More
Yes. They have compensated most victims
One estimate is that between 2,620,000 and 3,120,000 Japanese were killed, with as many as 1 million being civilians. (see the related link)
The Japanese Period in Filipino literature occurred between the years of 1941 and 1945. When Japan took over the Philippine government, all of the literature being produced was written in Japanese instead of English.
They enjoyed being militant...strength allowed survival. Sparta was no different.
It was a harsh place where Japanese people went during World War 2 because they were accused of being spies.
I would suggest looking up the internment camps. US citizens of Japanese descent were placed in internment camps on suspicion of being spies for Japan after Pearl Harbor. I would also suggest looking up the difficulties the Tuskagee Airmen dealt with, as many white pilots did not believe black men were intelligent enough to learn to fly a plane.
Being Japanese Obviously HaHa.
because it is not over there are still people being sold as slaves around the world
The original U-boats being exported to Russia during the Russo-Japanese War in 1904 were about 238 tons.
Where they could, they returned to their former homes (normally in California) and started all over again. When they could not regain their property, they sought employment, and worked their way up again; just as an unemployed person would do at any normal time.
The word "traitor" is 'uragirimono' in Japanese.
The Japanese have hundreds of reels of film shot during the war by the military and you can see them on television today. They did have some theater type of films but not very many due to the difficulties of the war (they were being bombed).
Fear! Many believed there were spys in the masses of Japanese-Americans who lived along the California coasts. Others believed they would sabotage Hoover Dam or defense plants. Still others though they might cause an uprising and try to take over governments. All were false, many Japanese-Americans served in the military fighting in Europe, others were translators for units in the Pacific. Translation was not only being able to read and speak the language, but understanding… Read More
It is infamous for being the location were hundreds of Allied POWs lost their lives due to being used as forced laborers during WW2 where the Japanese Imperial Army sought to establish a railway for logistical reasons that would help advance Japanese interests all the way into India .
Answer 1 What basically started it was Pearl Harbor They did it out of fear of them fighting alongside the Japanese. Answer 2 Unfortunately, racism was a huge part of United States history and Blacks were not the only race to suffer unequal and prejudicial treatment. Asian-Americans did not become accepted as "true Americans" until the mid-1960s. When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, many Americans saw the Japanese-Americans as a fifth column. This meant that… Read More
On December 7th in 1941 Aviators of the Japanese military flew from their aircraft carriers and bombed the US Naval fleet and airplanes without provocation by the United States. The goal of the Japanese had been to eliminate the US ability to send their naval fleet to Southwest Asian nations and islands the Japanese planned to take over to get their oil and raw materials. The Japanese people were surprised because they had not been… Read More
"ren'ai" is "romance" in Japanese or thought of being loved purely and rightly
Germany had to pay £6,600 million (which the Allies claimed to be reparations) for the damage done during the war. this being more money than German government could afford to pay caused a great depression and large debts to countries such as the USA.
The Chinese enjoyed themselves being killed by the Japanese XD
As or of Japan. A person who was born from Japanese descent(your mother, father, or grandparents are Japanese) which basically means being born from this culture.
Answer 1 Japanese Internment Camps were important in World War II, because the US Government was trying to make sure none that of no Japanese-Americans could contact their homeland and tell them what's going to happen. Answer 2 When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, many Americans saw the Japanese-Americans as a fifth column. This meant that they viewed the Japanese-Americans as secret spies for Japan and inherently disloyal to the United States. Strangely, from a… Read More
some group of people (hope this helps!) Yes, some groups of people, actually! We don't like to think that we, here in the USA, at any time, actually suspended human rights to ethnic groups; yet, during WWII, we put many US citizens of Japanese, also in some cases, German descent, into quite primitive internment/concentration camps, throughout the western USA. Most of these people also lost all their properties (real estate, homes, businesses, bank accounts, possessions)… Read More
no Chinese and Japanese are total different languages Actually, many of the characters are the same and while the meaning might by fuzzy, they can usually figure out what is being said when kanji is being used. When the Japanese alphabet is being used, the Chinese will not be able to read it.
