When the attack of Pearl Harbor happen American became worried about American Japanese. American were worried because they thought that American Japanese were part of the attack on Pearl Harbor. The American Japanese were told that they only had a view day to pack up their belonging or sell them, because they were going to internment camps.
In the internment camps Japanese American were patrolled by armed guards. The living conditions were poor, overcrowded, no plumping system, and no cooking facilities. Furthermore, the American Japanese were American citizens, so they were put into these camp because of the color of their skin and accusation of the attack. The American Japanese were let down by America. They came to America hopping for a better life, but now they were put into camps.
If I was put in the situation that Japanese Americans I would be devastated. I would lots of words. I would question myself over and over what I did wrong. In all honesty, I wouldn’t be able to do anything to help myself because it would be out of my control, all I could is listen to the government and do what they say.
