Murder, death, and destruction versus relocation. During WWII, the Japanese were relocated away from vital military locations and moved inland into Japanese Internment Camps. The European Jews, Gypsies, mentally ill, and anyone that opposed Hitler were put into Concentration and Death Camps. Some people think they are the same, but I think otherwise. The Japanese Internment Camps and German Concentration Camps were not the same thing because, their leaders views are very different, intentionally causing harm or unintentionally causing harm, and conditions in the different types of camps.

The Japanese internment camps are different from the Nazi concentration camps because of causing intentional harm or causing unintentional harm. The Nazi’s intentionally killed the Jews at the death camps, but the US didn 't intentionally kill any Japanese. The Nazis wanted to kill the Jews, they sent them to death camps, but the Americans just relocated the Japanese inland and all the Japanese death were from natural causes. The Nazis separated families to cause panic and pain, but the US kept the Japanese families together. Once the Jews got to the camps the men, women, and children reciprocated and did different jobs. The Americans took the whole family to a camp where they were given a dwelling. According to the George Takei and the Holocaust Documentry,the Natzi’s overworked their prisoners but thee United States did not. The Natzis intentonally over worked their prisoners until they could no longer work, but the United states only had them work to benefit their communities.The Natzis intualy caused harm but any harm conflicted by the Unites States was

As opposed to righteous view that America was safeguarding its position in the war, the Japanese American internments were created out of resentment and racial prejudice fostered by other Americans. As the article “Personal Justice Denied” stated, the internments were led by “widespread ignorance of Japanese Americans contributed to a policy conceived in haste and executed in an atmosphere of fear and anger at Japan” (Doc E, 1983). It may seem like a precautionary cause to make internments but there aren’t any other extreme measures for other fronts. Caused by a hatred stirred by media and society’s view, many people disdain the Japanese.
Japanese Internment (Executive Order 9066) Have you ever thought what happened back then,why war happened so much? Well there is one war there is one war I learned about, it’s the bombing of Pearl Harbor. This was mostly a between Japan and America. Also the united States not trusting the Japanese Americans and putting them into 10 different internment camps because of the bombing. Although Japanese Internment camps were caused by political,cultural, and economic factors, the most important causal factor was political.
During World war 2 the jewish people were not the only ones kept in camps. Soon after Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, Franklin D. Roosevelt had signed the executive order 9066. Which had forced the Japanese Americans to relocate regardless of their citizenships or whether they were born in the U.S. In world war 2 the Japanese americans were sent to concentration camps. In the course in the concentration camps they were treated as if they were prisoners without any freedom and respect. The Japanese Americans were civil people who had gotten sent into those camps without any reason.
Japanese internment camps are an unfortunate part of history, but how did it start? These camps started in World War II when the Japanese bombed America, and killed many Americans. The Americans were afraid that the Japanese would come to bomb them again,so they took harsh actions. Roosevelt, the president at the time, had to make a harsh decision about what to do with the Japanese Americans after the bombing of Pearl Harbor ,the cruel decision was to intern the japanese. The Americans nor Roosevelt knew when or if the Japanese were going to bomb again ,so he took actions Roosevelt decided to intern them.
The internment of Japanese-Americans was justified because there were Japanese suspects. Between ten internment camps in Arizona, California, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, and Arkansas, about 250-300 people in each camp were suspects under surveillance. Only around 50-60 people were actually considered dangerous. “It is easy to get on the suspect list, merely a speech in favor of Japan being sufficient to land one there” (Munson 2). Clearly, America was taking extreme precautions.
The Tragedy Events of the Japanese Internment of WWII There were many tragedies that led up to the Japanese internment in WWII. At first, it began with Japan attacking Pearl Harbor. When this unexpected attack happened, many other things led after this—things like the Americans fighting back, the execution order 9066, and the Japanese being held in consolidated camps. The Japanese internment during WWII is a tragic event that happened from February 19, 1942 - March 20, 1946. The Japanese Internment of WWII is the policy of the U.S. government that people of Japanese descent, including many U.S. citizens, were imprisoned in isolated camps.
These guys felt the blunt force of discrimination during this time. Japanese-Americans were forced into one of ten permanent camps. This was the result of Executive Order 9066 and Pearl Harbor. These camps were given the name internment camps. The point of internment was to test the loyalty of the Japanese-Americans.
Have you ever wondered Why were the Concentration camps established? who went to there, what kind of things happen to them while there? And how many people died? What happen to the survivors? Let’s find out what really happen in the Concentration Camps.
Over 100,000 were sent away to internment camps in the United States. Japanese Americans were being falsey accused of being spies to their homelands. If they were accused, they were separated from their families and placed in a detention center. For the Japanese Americans who stayed out of the internment camps were later forced by the American people. Americans would vanalize their homes, their stores, and would often form a mob to attack them with objects such as bricks.
How would you feel if one day you were told to leave your whole life behind to live in captivity just because people halfway across the world did something wrong? This horror story was all too true for the thousands of Japanese Americans alive during World War II. Almost overnight, thousands of proud Japanese Americans living on the west coast were forced to leave their homes and give up the life they knew. The United States government was not justified in the creation of Japanese internment camps because it stripped law-abiding American citizens of their rights out of unjustified fear.
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.
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 Nazi Concentration Camps and Japanese Internment Camps were not the same thing because of the purpose they had behind them. First, the American government
The Japanese Internment camps were a product of discrimination. This is the same for the Concentration Camps in Europe. One would cause the deaths of millions of people. The other would cause the government to apologise to the people in the camps, and give 20,000 dollars in reparations. Executive Order 9066 was one of the reasons that Internment camps were out in place.
Nazi concentration camps and Japanese internment camps are not the same thing because Hitler made his camps out of hate, while internment camps were made out of fear. Internment camps were established after the Japanese bombed the U.S. Concentration camps just collected everyone who didn’t fit the idea of a ‘pure’ German. Even though they are similar, the German camps were made before things got bad in the war, and not because the country got bombed. Hitler wanted Germany to be perfect, so he put all Jews in camps or killed. Japanese
