What were the internment camps like for the Japanese Americans?
The treatment at Japanese Internment Camps was problematic the treatment was. Japanese individuals were carted away from their homes, their belongings, and their livelihoods. They were treated as you would treat a person with a deadly communicable disease and placed in "quarantined places". Once the Japanese arrived at the camps, they were fed enough for them to survive but not enough to be satisfied, that they lived in deteriorating barracks, and their lives were regimented. It was as if they were criminal prisoners.

Asked in US in WW2, Japanese Internment Camps
Why were Japanese Americans moved to internment camps?
Rumors spread about Japanese aliens assisting Japanese troops in California. There were fears of a Japanese attack on California. After Pearl Harbor (the attack) the US government believed that spies played a part in the attack (as they actually did). And fearing more attacks the Government sent Japanese Americans to camps called internment camps. This was nothing like concentration camps in WW2, these camps were built to keep them from passing on information to the Japanese Government and military. People were provided basic space and basic food and were (if im correct) still protected by law. They still mad many of the rights they ordinarily had. It is an interesting topic.

What were Japanese internment camps like?
Non-weather resistant, quick, sparse accommodations in non-residential structures in controllable or remote areas is what the Japanese internment camps were like. The buildings were designed previously for non-personal uses -- such as functioning as former racetracks -- even though -- depending upon the regulating agency -- educational, gardening, medical, and sports opportunities hopefully were tendered to children and families.
What is the difference between an Japanese internal camp and a concentration camp?
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 special prisons that were initially meant to function a lot like the aforementioned internment camps. However, the Nazis didn't wait long to start doing terrible things to the internees, such as using them as slave laborers, performing medical experiments on them, or simply executing them. Unlike the Japanese internment camps, the Nazi concentration camps were intended primarily to get rid of any people that the government didn't like- Jews, Russians, Poles, Romany, homosexuals, political opponents, and so forth.

Why didn't they put Muslims in internment camps after 911 like how they did with the Japanese during World War 2?
A: The Japanese residents of the United States were placed in internment camps because the United States was at war and there was the chance that the Japenese people would try to assist the Japanese war effort. This was quite different to the situation after the 911 attacks, when even the most conservative politicians recognised that the loyalties of most Muslims in the country were with the United States. There was no need or reason to place them in internment other than as a misguided and misplaced punishment for attacks they had no prior knowledge of.

Where did the people from the internment camps go after?
Why did the Japanese had to be in the internment camps?
well, after pearl harbor, everyone knew it was the Japanese that bombed pearl harbor. But, it's not like there weren't Japanese immigrants living in America. President Roosevelt was very suspicious about this. In the middle of his suspicion, he had a thought that there were Japanese spies in the US. So he announced that all Japanese in America were to be relocated from their homes and into internment camps that were located in the middle of the country. But of course, he didn't say that he was doing this because he thought they were spies. He just simply said it was to protect them from any further trouble from the actual Japanese that were against the US, since he also said that he believed that to Japan, Japanese-Americans were traitors and were a disgrace to Japan. You know, the evil-japanese.

What is the difference between an internment camp and a concentration camp?
A concentration camp is a prison camp for the detention of aliens, members of ethnic minorties, poltical opponents, etc. like the Germans condemned the Jews and other minorities to during WWII. An internment camp is a prison camp for the imprisonment of enemies such as POW's like the Americans had for the JAPANESE-AMERICAN RESIDENTS during WWII. the only difference is that internment camps are for prisoners of war and concentration camps are for minorities that you are not technically at war with. The U.S. was at war with Japan; Hitler was not at war with the Jews.
Asked in Holocaust, Germany in WW2
What type of suffering was in the Holocaust?
The type of suffering in the holocaust was very devastating. Those who were captured were sent into internment camps (like the Japanese-Americans) and were cut off from everyday life, necessities, and sanitation. Life was miserable; those who weren't captured were killed and those that were lucky fled the country and had to leave their old life behind and start a new one.
Asked in Pearl Harbor, Holocaust
Compare between internment of Japanese Americans and the Holocaust?
The Japanese may not have been directly "tortured," but like the Jewish people, they were taken out of their homes and sent somewhere to be stripped of dignity and freedom. I believe that that alone is enough to be called torture. There were terrible conditions in all camps, holocaust or internment, that promoted spread of diseases, and people died of starvation. There were wrong motives for both internment and the holocaust; racism was a part in both causes. Both the Japanese AMERICANS and the Holocaust victims were treated like DIRT, and no human should ever be treated like they were! I apologize if I offended anyone or seem biased, but this is based on research.
