The image that the American government portrayed of the Japanese Interment Camps was a positive and happy one. They associated healthfulness and happiness with the camps. Propaganda suggested that life in the camps was equal to, if not better, than life outside of the camps.

Reality

The reality of life in the camps is that it wasn't so great. In fact, it was a sad life, much different than what the propaganda has portrayed.

Outside the Camps

Outside the camps, because of the war conflicts, white Americans generally didn't accept the Japanese people, or people of Japanese descent. The fact that the government had "removed" Japanese people didn't help with them to be accepted within society.
