Japanese Internment Camps
The Truth behind the treatment of the Japanese
The Japanese were treated very poorly in the internment camps. The government portrayed to the American citizens that the camps were nice and that the Japanese people willingly went there and were very accepting of their fate. The first photo shows what actually happened to the Japanese people. They did not react well and they were very afraid and sad. The second photo shows the Japanese people being excited ad looking happy, but that was not the case.
The Truth behind the Japanese population
The American government spread propaganda showing that the Japanese were all bad people and that we need to get back at them. The first picture illustrates how America wanted to get revenge on the Japanese for the attacks on Pearl Harbor. The second photo is of a Japanese regiment in the army at the same time. America generalized the entire Japanese population and blamed them for the Pearl Harbor attacks even when many of them were actually loyal to America.
