In 1932 we get the bullets and gas of the police, as we did in Washington, and the troops, which Hoover called put against us. Because we were demanding the Bonus so that we and our families could have something to eat, the President of the United States orders the army to gas and bayonet us, to burn our meagre belongings and to drive our wives and children into the dark of the night,” (Veteran’s 3). Even soldiers who had to dissolve the protest were discontent with evacuation of protestors. George S. Patton, a senior Army officer, reflected on the elimination of the Bonus Army, calling it, “a messy affair for everyone,” and, “[a] most distasteful form of service,”
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.
This affected all of China, 300,000 plus were killed. The capital was defended by untrained auxiliary troops which did not prevent Japanese from ending the massacre. World War 2’s end was the only cause that prevented this huge tragedy. Japan had no remorse, they deny all these killings and torture. Rape Of Nanking came to an end due to World War 2 ending.
Japan soon expands and gains control of much of northern China. In 1937 a large invasion of China takes place and the Japanese army attacks and captures Shanghai on November 12. As word spread the Chinese withdrew much of their elite troops from the capital city of Nanking, leaving only untrained soliders. There was never an official evacuation of the city but much of the population fled on their own. In response to the news a group of 22 Americans and Europeans, including surgeons, a nazi bussinessman, a German Olympic wrestler, and an American missionary, form the International Committee for the Nanking Safety Zone.

He acknowledged that an unstable peace and constant uncertainly had led to the practice of samurai farming and peasants to take up arms. To combat this, he issued decrees that defined the social status and duties of all Japanese. He banned everyone from having weapons besides samurai. Samurai were ordered back to towns.
The horrific slaughter that followed was the last straw for President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The U.S was going to war and our Commander and Chief had the broad responsibility to lead us as a nation in what would soon become known as World War II. Franklin D Roosevelt had decided to declare war. This would take us into a period of time that Roosevelt had to make many difficult choices out of fear and bad advice. “Two months after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 ordering all Japanese-Americans to evacuate the west coast.” (History.com 2015) This decision eventually led to the internment of Japanese citizens against their will.

In World War II under the presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt a document was signed that changed the lives of more than 120,000 people. This document was Executive Order 9066 which disclosed the orders of evacuating all Japanese-Americans from the West Coast (Lecture 12/1). This decision came to realization two months after the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 1941. This event sparked paranoia with the President and the American people, because there were Japanese people living within the U.S. and they feared that the Japanese population would invaded America thinking that they were loyal to Japan. Due to the concern of the public, President Roosevelt was pressured to sign Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942 (Lecture
Pol Pot was born Saloth Sar on May 19, 1925, in Kompong Thom Province, Cambodia. He rose to power leading the Cambodia’s Communist group. The Communists took control of the country in 1975, allowing for little freedom in citizens. In 1979, Pol Pot oversaw the deaths of one to two million people. Pol Pot believed that the “old society” should be executed because the group had hate towards them.
The American people thought of the Japanese Americans as a security risk in the event of a Japanese invasion of the American mainland.

In the early 1900s, due to Imperial Japan’s struggling transition from the feudal era to the modern era, Japanese immigrants were flooding into the West coast of America. Fearful of the rising number of Japanese immigrants, Americans would proceed to try and eradicate the “yellow peril”, leading to prejudiced exchanges and racist encounters with the Japanese-Americans. These encounters would drastically affect the Japanese-American community and ultimately lead to their internment during WWII. Because of Imperial Japan’s struggle to come into the modern age, its economy was increasingly worsened. The first Japanese-Americans, or Issei, came to America in the early 1880s, looking for work and adventure.
