Most camps were very hard to live in. People had small houses that could have anywhere from 1 to 3 families living in them. Most camps had very little food that was given out to people in very small amounts for 48 cents per meal. Because of this, many people were malnourished.
When they were brought to the camps, they could only bring what they were wearing and what they could carry. Many lost possessions and many could not keep their homes or farms.
Compared to POW Treatment
Nobody was tortured in the US camps where Japanese people were held during the war. Nobody was beaten to death, nor were they forced to work as slave labour. Nobody was executed for being "lazy". Nobody went blind from vitamin deficiency, or lost a leg to gangrene.
The American, British, Canadian, Australian, and Indian soldiers who were prisoners of the Japanese government WERE beaten to death, and starved to death, and worked to death, and so were the civilian women and children that were also captured by the Japanese army. The difference in treatment was huge and the number of western POWS who died in Japanese camps was a disgrace.
And here is more input:
The United States government actions were un-American and more importantly unconstitutional, regardless of the ruling of Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black.

This is what the name "Beth" looks like in Japanese: It is pronounced "BESU". (Consonants are pronounced more or less the same way as in English. "U" sounds like oo in hook, but with less rounding of the lips. "E" sounds like e in met.) http://www.japanesetranslator.co.uk/your-name-in-japanese/
Tule Lake, in northern California, was one of the most infamous of the internment camps. Prisoners there held frequent demonstrations and strikes, demanding their rights under the U.S. Constitution. As a result, it was made a "segregation camp," and internees from other camps who had refused to take the loyalty oath or had caused disturbances were sent to Tule Lake. At its peak, Tule Lake held 18,789 internees. Tule Lake was also one of the last camps to be closed, staying open until March 20, 1946.

Because that's when it started and fiscal years count 12 months, not '06 to '07.
At least 6 and as many as 20 were shot or otherwise directly killed by sentries, allegedly while trying to escape. Several died from disputes within the camps. An unknown number, certainly in the hundreds, died from lack of proper medical care. Many who died in the camps could not receive a proper burial in their US hometowns, although some were re-interred after the war.

During World War II, the military feared that some persons of Japanese ancestry might conduct espionage or sabotage in the important industrial centers on the US Pacific coast.
The federal government was concerned enough to establish a policy that removed all ethnic Japanese from the West Coast, even those who were US citizens, and relocated them to guarded camps built in remote areas, often deserts. More than 100,000 Japanese people, half of them children, were forced to go to these camps. There were 10 camps, surrounded by barbed wire and armed guards. They could only bring what they could carry, and many lost their homes and businesses. They were imprisoned in the camps from 1942 to early 1945, when the Supreme Court ruled their detention unconstitutional.
Some Japanese-American men from the camps and elsewhere still volunteered to fight for the US in the war, and many served with distinction.
Assembly Centers and Internment Camps
There were three different kinds of camps that they would send Japanese-American citizens to. The first were Civilian Assembly Centers, which were temporary camps when they were initially taken out of their communities. These included:
Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia, California
Fresno Fairgrounds in Fresno, California
Civilian Conservation Corps camp in Mayer, Arizona
County Fairgrounds in Merced, California
Owens Valley, California
Parker Dam, Arizona
Pinedale Assembly Center in Pinedale, California
Los Angeles County Fairgrounds in Pomona, California
Pacific International Livestock Exposition in Portland, Oregon
Camp Harmony in Puyallup, Washington
Tanforan racetrack in San Bruno, California
San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton, California
Stanislaus County Fairgrounds in Turlock, California
Most were then transferred to one of 10 Internment Camps:
Gila River War Relocation Center, Arizona
Granada War Relocation Center, Colorado (also known as Amache)
Heart Mountain War Relocation Center, Wyoming
Jerome War Relocation Center, Arkansas
Manzanar War Relocation Center, California
Minidoka War Relocation Center, Idaho

Internment camps were created for both German and Japanese Americans. The intent behind these camps was to limit communications between the US and Japan or Germany as there was a fear that relatives would share national secrets or information that would harm the US.
My father was an Italian prisoner of war in WW II. He was captured somewhere in Africa and taken to the U.S. and sent to prison camps in Boston and in Albuquerque, New Mexico. When he was in Boston, I know he told us that once in a while the Italian families in Boston would be able to pick them up and take them to Italian dances at the local churches. So I would say that they were treated with dignity and respect, I feel he was very lucky to be captured early on by the Americans, it could have saved his life. My father is 89 years old, and he doesn't talk much about the war. I really should try to get him to tell me more, and I know if I asked him he would tell me more stories.

a Short answer would be yes they did actually they had hospitals and stores farms and homes.
It is one of many historical events that seems "more" evil in retrospect, because it is difficult to fathom the minds of those who lived in an earlier age, those who had fewer qualms about the violation of individual rights when establishing national policies. In hindsight, much of history includes man's inhumanity to man, and this continues into the present day.
During World War II, the US government authorized the internment of many thousands of ethnic Japanese in the western US. Most of these individuals were in fact American citizens. Compared to wartime POW camps, or the concentration camps of the Nazis, the conditions were not inhumane. But they were still prisons, and almost no one was allowed to leave. In retrospect, this seems cruel, barbaric, and against traditional American ideals.
However, the national mentality at the time was one of hostility toward most Asians, because any distinction between Chinese, or Japanese, or Koreans was beyond the capacity of much of the population. The primary recognition was that a war with Japan was killing Americans, just as the war with Germany had cost American lives in World War I. For many Americans, this often translated to suspicion and even racial hatred.
At the time, the ideal of racial equality was nowhere universal. Some states in the US in 1940 were also still treating African-Americans as second-class citizens, 75 years after the last Southern slaves were emancipated. (Segregation and discrimination continued for another 25 years after World War II.) The Japanese, with their strange customs and language, were an unknown and distrusted minority.
It is important to note that this internment did not occur in Hawaii, where ethnic Asians made up a larger percentage of the population. It also did not extend to the Eastern US, where first and second generation Asians were somewhat rarer.
Way too many. It was horrible and it's a scary part of our American history.
Most Japanese were in the camps for 3 years. Following Executive Order 9066 (February 19, 1942), the first Relocation Centers were staffed in March, 1942. Following the US Supreme Court ruling in January, 1945, most internees were released between April and November, 1945. Some were held for various reasons (including criminal offenses) into 1946, and the \"segregation\" camp at Tule Lake closed in March of that year.
No, that's just a myth. It will work if plugged in correctly. Always check the voltage of a foreign device before plugging it in. Mayny electronic devices nowadays use switching powersupplies with wide input voltage ranges. As it is cheaper to design one supply capable of handling 100-240VAC on the input as opposed to one for each country's individual supply, they do that instead. On the power block or on the back of the unit there will be a sticker or molding that says the input voltage range. If it says 220V only, it cannot be used directly in the US, special steps are needed. If it says 120V, or a range encompasing 120V, it will work. Also note the line frequency. Again, most devices don't care (The first thing a switcher does is rectify it to DC), but if it doesn't say 60hz it will not work correctly. You have to use a converter. Because Japanese things have a different voltage level than America. Japan uses 100V, which is 60 hertz in western Japan and 50 hertz in eastern Japan. Radio Shack sells the converter you need.
Internment is the imprisonment of large groups without any legal process. Nazi concentration camps are imprisonment which would be internment.
They were in internment camps because of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Hope that helps!!!
izbica in the II war help people away germany
Yes it is true. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, President FDR issued Executive Order 9066 which lead to the relocation of thousands of Japanese-Americans to internment camps. Though not as harsh as concentration camps set up by the Germans, people died and living conditions were rough.
those are two words for the Japanese translation for 'nothing'Answer何もない (nanimonai) literally meaning "None".
虚 (kyo) literally meaning "Imaginary".
水泡 (suihou) literally meaning "Nothing".
かいむ (kaimu) literally meaning "Nothing".
ことなし (kotonashi) literally meaning "Without".
Camp Welch was founded in 1882 in Massachusetts.
The oldest camp (continuously operated, private) in the USA is Camp Highlands for Boys in Sayner, Wisconsin. Founded in 1904 by a group of parents from the University of Chicago Laboratory School who wanted their city-raised boys to have a wilderness and work experience, Camp was first managed and then owned by Harry O'Gillet...the Headmaster from the "Lab School". Camp Highlands was not the first camp in the US... there were a small number of others, but they have since ceased operations. Camp Highlands derives its name from the fact that it is located in the "Highlands of Wisconsin," which is an area of land and lakes about 30 miles square in Vilas County. The camp occupies two peninsulas at the Northeast end of Plum Lake, and sits surrounded by the Northern Highlands State Forest. The primary architect of Camp Highlands for Boys was Doctor William J. Monilaw. "Doc" bought the camp in 1914 after having been a counselor there since 1911. "Doc" was the school doctor and athletic trainer for the "Lab" school. Doc followed through with the original concept of providing a wilderness and physical work experience for the campers but along with that he stressed character building. After 45 years of building and directing, at the age of 85, Doc sold camp to: Norvil and Cleo Beeman, Anthony and Lucille (Mickey) Anthony, Unk and Alice Nelson, Orville (Snow) and Miriam Nothdurft, Ralph Magor and Bob Mannschott...a group of counselors hoping to keep camp going. When Norvil, Tony, Unk, Ralph and Bob passed away, Lucille Anthony and the Nothdurfts were joined by Mike and Sharon Bachmann. Mike Bachmann started as a camper in 1950 and has been continuously since. The staff member with the greatest number of summers is Mike's spouse Sharon, who has attended continously (originally as the daughter of parents Snow and Mim Northdurft) since 1944. The two met at camp. Mike Bachmann has directed Camp Highlands for Boys since 1963. He is joined by his son Andy, who took the title of Co-Director in 2007, and has attended since 1974. Sharon Bachmann manages the camp kitchens and Highlands Lodge (an area of camp for guests). Notable alumni include Heisman Trophy winners' Jay Berwanger and Nile Kinnick, American Advisor and Ambassador George Kennan, Senator William Proxmire, and Managing Partner of Edward Jones, John Bachmann (brother of Mike).
Possibly, but one must consider that Italians and Germans were rounded up also, but possibly not in the same numbers, nor possibly with the same publicity.
