The Japanese Americans were treated unfairly during their captivation in the internment camps. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought the US into the second World War making the Japanese people an easy target for hate and suspicion. The American government forced all Japanese Americans into internment camps that were extremely cramped and unsanitary. The anti-Japanese propaganda influenced by the raging war just outside America, fueled Americans with hatred and distrust towards these immigrants which in turn made the engagement of the Japanese people, as well as culture such an easy feat. The United States was launched into WWII on December 7, 1941, when Japan attacked Pearl Harbor.
When you think of internment camps in World War II and the discrimination of an entire race, you probably think of the Nazi’s mass genocide of the Jewish people. However, not nearly as often discussed or taught, was the American discrimination of Japanese-Americans in the form of Japanese-American internment camps during World War II. Due to the terrible attack on Pearl Harbor, the American public became paranoid of another attack on American soil and as a result of this, war hysteria overtook the country. Anti- Japanese paranoia increased due to a large Japanese presence in the West Coast. The American people thought of the Japanese Americans as a security risk in the event of a Japanese invasion of the American mainland.
The Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor caused Japanese Americans to face discrimination. They were viewed as spies and suspicious. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry were sent to one of 10 internment camps. Japanese Americans should receive reparations from the U.S. government because it was unfair what happened to them during WWII. Life for Japanese Americans in the camps was bad.
Pearl Harbor, the Genocide “The American people in their righteous might will win through to an absolute victory.”- Franklin Roosevelt. This is what the President of the United States of America said the day after Pearl Harbor while millions of Americans are frightened in their homes. Pearl Harbor was a sad day; many people died and showed courage in fighting against the Japanese in the surprise attack. We need to respect our country’s soldiers for their bravery. Japan’s motives for world domination lead them to Pearl Harbor, where they killed thousands.
World War Two caused the death of millions of innocent people and the destruction of thousands of years of civilisation through the viciousness of mankind. World War Two started on the 3rd of September 1939 when the allied forces declared war against Germany after the unprovoked attack of Poland and didn’t end until 1945 with the defeat of the Japanese imperial forces. The battle of Kokoda began on July 21st 1942 when the Japanese imperial army invaded Papua New Guinea with the intent of capturing Port Moresby and using it as a launching point onto Australian soil. The battle ended on January 23rd 1943, resulting in an Allied victory. There were four peoples at war in Kokoda, those were the Australians and the Americans, who were allied.
Europe and Asia had been engulfed in War World Two long before the United States was forced to join in on the Allies side. When the U.S. declared war on Japan, they had been dominating all throughout Asia in land, sea, and air. The U.S. navy at first where dealt a serious of defeats by the Japanese navy and all seemed lost. A single battle turned the tide of the war in the pacific and put the Japanese on the defensive. The United States began to push the Japanese back in a serious of major land and sea battles.
Japan wanted complete control over the Pacific region and the US was considered the imminent threat. The Japanese planned to isolate the Pacific region; and aimed to destroy the battleships, block the ports and have complete domination of the region. The mission commissioned by the Japanese was partially successful but failed to achieve its major objective. The Japanese wanted to block the Pearl Harbor, primarily to prevent access for the ships and increase the turnaround time for the US Navy to be operational again. Luckily for the Americans, a total disaster was averted as the crew of the USS Nevada moved their battleship out of the harbor into the sea, preventing many additional lives from being lost, as well as providing the crucial time for the US Navy to regroup and
The Japanese colonial rule (1910-1945) was despotic because there have been massive killings when people tried to oppose. The government was ruled directly through the military (Asia for Educators). The same used force in order to inflict fear upon people. During this time, a bug number of people because captives and were taken to Japan. Scholarly estimates tell that there were about 20, 000 to 100, 000 who became captives (Haboush & Robinson IX).
In order for them to support the war, the government used propaganda to evoke feelings of nationalism. While the United States joined the war as an opportunity to get revenge on Japan, propaganda was often censored to guarantee that Americans only saw the damage Japanese soldiers had done to Americans. To insure that Americans would not be put off and maintain the desire for war, images of dead Americans were prevented from being published to the public. (“Supporting Evidence”). Government officials knew that citizens were unable to withstand the gruesome photos taken of the realities of the war.
Building up to the mid 1940s, Japan’s resentment towards western civilizations grew in response to their forced trade relationships. After militarily taking over parts of China, Japan decided to strike the United States before they could respond to Japan’s belligerence. With the attack of Pearl Harbor, Japan pushed the United States to officially join the Second World War. Fear from the attack towards the Japanese and existing racism lead to the internment of the Japanese citizens of North America, which led to hostile relations between those of the Japanese and the Americans. Pearl Harbor created an overwhelming fear amongst the citizens of America of the Japanese.
The Battle of Stalingrad, and the attack on Pearl Harbor were all battles that had a devastating ending, with many deaths. Germany at the time in World War (WWII)was part of the Axis Powers, joined by Japan. The United States was part of the Allied powers. Both of these battles were significant because they had deep importance in the expansion of their country 's involvement in the war and to showcase their power. The Battle of Stalingrad, started in July 17, 1942 - February 2, 1943, and took place in the western front of Russia in the city of Stalingrad.
Violence is a better choice than non-violence because the Japanese began conquering nearby countries and treating people horribly until America joined in the war and used violence to stop the Japanese. During World War II the Americans were fighting the Japanese, “Japan conquered and treated people with cruelty and disrespect. Japan also kills and rapes innocent people” (32.2). Japan seized hold of many cities and treated people horribly and were very brutal. They also kill and rape faultless civilians.
Hence, it is imperative one understands the role the Lusitania played during the Great War. To begin, During the Great War, the U.S. was in an economic slump, and the war was a means of jumping out of this recession. The U.S. merchants began trading arms with the Allies, especially Britain. To stop this, Germany initiated the Unrestricted Submarine Warfare policy. Unrestricted submarine warfare meant that whenever German U-boats saw ships or vehicles which were not under the control of the Central Powers or were believed to carry goods for the Allies, they destroyed them.
