  • Útdráttur er á ensku

    The internment of Japanese Americans during World War II (WWII) is a period in American history that is generally not given due attention. The purpose of this essay is to research and gain understanding of how such an incident could take place, what internees had to go through, and the impact it has had on Japanese American citizens to this day. In doing so, the lives and circumstances for Japanese Americans and Japanese aliens residing in the United States prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor will be analyzed, information on the events that lead to the evacuation of this specific group of people will be examined and how the U.S. government carried out the evacuations. This essay will then go on to examine conditions in the internment camps and daily life of the internees, followed by a chapter about the social struggles and recovery of Japanese Americans subsequent to being released. In the final chapter the human and civil rights aspect of the internment will be further examined by analyzing the constitutional injustices that detainees were subjected to, and whether their constitutional rights were violated.
