It all started off with the bombing of Pearl Harbor, this spelled trouble for the Japanese immigrants already settled in America. They worked hard to overcome discrimination and managed to establish small businesses and farms (Roosevelt, 1942, p. 112). Another reason for such the drastic measure taken, was the growing distrust in Japanese immigrants and their children. To justify taking the Japanese Americans, General John L. DeWitt was convinced that they were more loyal to their Japanese heritage than their American citizenship (Roosevelt, 1942, p. 112). Internment Camps Due to the lack of trust in the Japanese citizens and immigrants, President Kennedy ordered them all to be sent to detention camps.
In my opinion, I think he blamed them because they were not like him. When I say not like him I mean that they were not German or his race. Everyone had to be just the way he wanted them to be in my opinion. According to annefrank.org “by giving the Jews the blame Hitler created an enemy.” The solution to Hitler’s problem was banishment. Adolf Hitler
Defeat or sorry? The difference between the Concentration Camps and Japanese Internment Camps was unreal. Just to think someone wanted to have a camp just for killing or to have a camp so you can be removed from your family was just sickening. At least only one of the camps were out of defeat and the other camp was out of sorry. The Concentration Camps and Japanese Internment Camps were different, because of the purposes, care of people, and religion against nationality.
The Japanese-American Relocation may be thought of as done out of fear, but the American government still locked them away in places where guns were faced inward toward the camp community and the Japanese had no rights or freedom. And the Jewish concentration camps may have been more harsh than the internment camps, but both events were a dreadful time in history. Japanese internment camps in America, Jewish concentration camps in Germany, internment camps thought to be out of fear for the Japanese but actually from them, internment and concentration camps both originating from anger, assumptions and judgments lead to why the Japanese and Jews were being held captive, these camps were deadly and life
In the past, innocent people got persecuted by the hands of other individuals because of hatred. These terrible actions started because of the pure hatred, lack of knowledge, and people didn’t fight back. Since, this happened people have lost their lives for example 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and shooting that is going on. “If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate”. Nazi ideology started Propaganda causing discrimination and hate which justified genocide, which led 6.3 millions Jews killed.
Hardly Human About 200,000 people that passed through the Auschwitz death camp during the Holocaust managed to survive. However, that number pales in comparison to the 2.1 to 4 million people slaughtered in that very same camp. Elie Wiesel, the author of Night, became one of the seemingly lucky survivors of this horrifying genocide. In this novel, Elie describes the agony he went through while going from one concentration camp to the next attempting to escape death. During the Holocaust, the Nazi’s treated their prisoners as vermin that they needed to immediately dispose of.
On Feb, 24th 1942, Prime Minister William Lyon Makenzie King issued a number of orders-in-council to force them back to Japan or disperse them Far East of the Rockies. Considering they were not being seen as threats to the country, to issue such an outrageous order-in-council for no apparent reason Is simply a racist act that 's should be seen as unjust. Ten days later they trained Japanese down to Hastings park where they were put in animal stalls, dehumanized and inadequately fed. To do this to another person who has done nothing but have a different pigmentation is sick nothing Japanese Canadians did led them to deserve
An evil disgusting dictator named Adolf Hitler built concentration camps and tortured and killed millions and millions of innocent people including men, women, and children. Jewish People were told that they would be living in a better place. But it was the opposite. In concentration camps, Jewish people were kept in small crowded cells filled with strangers and very little room for sleep and privacy.
Their basic liberties and Constitutional rights were stripped (Denn, Benjamin. "Japanese-American Rights in Regard to Internment”, iamanamerican.weebly.com ). For instance, any Japanese suspected of espionage were arrested and detained without a trial, clearly violating due process and the seventh amendment of the United States constitution(Denn, Benjamin, iamanamerican.weebly.com ). In addition, their homes were raided by the FBI, and many of their possessions were confiscated, therefore violating the fourth amendment(Denn, Benjamin, iamanamerican.weebly.com ). Their Religion, Shintoism, was suppressed, conditions in the camps were horrible, Japanese Americans were denied the right to vote, and could not even speak (Denn, Benjamin, iamanamerican.weebly.com ).
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.
