The Japanese prisoner of war camps were prisons ran by savages, with no rules. These camps were built for soldiers that surrendered in World War Two, and lasted until the end of the war. These camps were ran by savages that saw us less than dogs, and treated people worse than the Germans did.
Persecution or hatred? Treated like animals or people? The Americans forced all Japanese-Americans to go to internment camps during World War I. And the Germans forced all Jewish people to go to concentration camps in World War II. Both very different camps. The concentration and internment camps aren’t the same thing because of how they got treated, the purpose of the camps, and the number of deaths.
There are many different types of camps in the world but there are two different types of camps that can be considered the same thing, there is Japanese Internment camps and there is Nazi Concentration camps. Japanese Internment camps and Nazi Concentration camps are two different things. One of the camps was made just to contain the Japanese until they sweared their allegiance. The other was made to kill the jews and make them work until they can no longer, witch ever comes first.
The year 1939 wasn’t a good year for anyone. In 1939, France and England declared war on the Axis Powers, Germany, Italy, and Japan, starting World War II. During this time Nazi Concentration Camps formed under Hitler’s command and Japanese Internment Camps formed in America. While both camps were horrible things, they were not the same thing. Japanese Internment Camps and Nazi Concentration Camps, essentially, were not the same thing because of the reasons why they were formed, the outcome of the camps, and the effects they had on people.
The internment of Japanese Americans during WWII was not justified. After Pearl Harbor, many Americans were scared of the Japanese Americans because they could sabotage the U.S. military. To try and solve the fear President Franklin D Roosevelt told the army in Executive order 9066 to relocate all Japanese Americans living on the West Coast. They were relocated to detention centers in the desert. Many of them were in the detention centers for three years.
In the book Night by Elie Wiesel, it talks about how his time in the concentration and how they were treated, and what he thought about. He talks about how they were treated brutally and unfairly just because of their religion. How they were forced to live in poor conditions, and how they were promised a better life if they came with them. That promise was broken as soon as they got to their first concentration camp. When they first go their they saw the smoke coming from the chimneys and the smelling of burning flesh. A lot of their human rights were violated.
World War II had lots of hard work to be done, and most of it was taken out on Jewish and Japanese people. The Japanese were put into internment camps, and the Jewish people in concentration camps. Not only was it the Jewish people, but people with mental illnesses, disabilities, and people who were homosexual. Anyone who was different was put into concentration camps. Even though they are similar, concentration and internment camps aren’t the same because one was out of fear, the other hatred, ‘actions’ versus ‘reactions’, and the Japanese had opportunities, while the Jewish didn’t.
There are many arguments made by intelligent historians that accuse president Franklin Roosevelt of deliberately provoking an attack from Japan in order to get involved in World War II. These claims come from a wide berth of evidence. For instance, one of the most common arguments that revisionists make is Roosevelt had a weak force at Pearl Harbor on purpose.(Theobald 262). They believe that he wanted to entice an attack from Japan by giving them the opportunity to make their move, knowing that it would not be hard to take down the ships/aircraft at Pearl Harbor. FDR was clearly leaning towards war based on these actions and his conversations with Admiral Richardson in 1940, saying that there had to be a drastic incident in the US to make
Citizen 13660 is an illustrated picture book representing the internment of people who were of Japanese descent. More than 110,000 Japanese people were evacuated simply because of their racial background. This has been no reasonable justification as to why the order of 9066 was even made. Fear swept over the United States after the attack on Pearl Harbor. This caused a mass spread of propaganda which degraded anyone of Japanese ancestry.
As John Lennon once said, “Peace is not something you wish for; it’s something you make, something you do, something you are, and something you give away” (Lennon). Although not all Japanese-Americans were spies, there were many to watch out for in the United States. President Roosevelt signed an executive order that led to the relocation of the Japanese to internment camps in order to keep America safe and have the descendants from Japan prove their loyalty to the country, but it also created opportunities for the Japanese years later.
Because of Japan’s attack, the United States had to get involved with the war and defend themselves. They made all generations of Japanese people go into internment camps, but these camps were different from concentration camps. Although they were in camps, the japanese weren’t treated as bad as the Jewish people in concentration camps during the Holocaust. All they did was to work and they had places to stay in, even though they weren’t so bad. Although they were called internment camps, President Roosevelt called them concentration camps, yet they were treated
An Internment camp means to put a person in prison or other type of detention, generally in wartime. Internment camps usually meant death. People were treated awful just because of things like their culture or religion. Only because some people did not like their beliefs. So they would be sent off to different internment camps to be killed, or to be mistreated. But people still tried to make the best of the situation.
According to United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Concentration Camps were various facilities that were defined as political, ideological, or racial opponents of the regime. Many different camps were given different names and different roles. There are death camps, transit camps, labor camps, and concentration camps. The first camp that was established was to expand and centralize the camps under SS management. The Concentration Camps started becoming known as death
There were plenty of Witch Hunts throughout the history of the world; from the Holocaust and the KKK. All of the Witch Hunts have something in common, for example the killing of people and humiliation of innocent people. Witch Hunts are related all around the world because they can occur at whatever time in a small or large scale. For example,127,000 US citizens form Japanese Decedent were relocated in 1942 and were forced to move to interment camps but not only did the US put Japanese in camps but so did Canada, and it places 23,000 Canadians that have or are Japanese Decedents and all of this Japanese Canadian were sent to the camps. The survivors of these camps were paid 20,000 each one in reparations for what they suffered in the camps
Although international laws evolved after the Second World War, a concept and standard on behaviors between countries, what countries can do to their people and how countries should engage in war existed in the international law prior the Second World War. For example, Hague Conference of 1907 and Geneva Convention of 1929 had guidelines on how a country in war should treat the certain individuals. Several laws in the conferences conventions applied to the U.S. government’s action, which proved the government’s violation of international law toward people of Japanese ancestry during wartime. Both Hague Conference of 1907 and Geneva Convention of 1929 have a part on the treatments of Prisoners of War (POW), which could be applied to the people
